A wonderful well-paced 2 day basket course. My mum and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and have beautiful baskets to show for it. Thanks Joe and the other ladies for such a great time xx
Response from Creative with Nature:really glad you enjoyed your time and superb baskets made. well done!
The course is really enjoyable and the end-product is amazing. Cathy was a very patient and helpful teacher and made the experience really fun.
Response from Creative with Nature:Thanks so much for your review Owen. Really glad you enjoyed the day!
Such a fun day out learning a new skill & relaxing , better that a day spa with a great reward to take home.
I didn’t think I could make a stag 🦌 head , well with the experienced guidance I was amazed by lunch time as the willow came to life. I know have an amazing trophy head made with love , that all my visitors are asking “where did you buy that”
I’m beaming every time I say “I made it”
Thank you and see you on the Bee 🐝 workshop
Response from Creative with Nature:hi lina,
Absolutely fantastic course from an inspired and experienced teacher. The whole experience was very well thought through, with differentiation built in depending on ability/ confidence. I felt fully supported through the whole process and came out with a fantastic looking log basket and a sense of real achievement. It has inspired me to continue my learning journey in working with willow and will no doubt return for some more training at some point.
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks for the review Gavin! Really glad you enjoyed the weekend course. You're a natural basket weaver. xx
Absolutely loved the 2 day bag making course. Cathy lets people go at their own pace as and when needed. She is excellent at sharing her knowledge and giving hints and tips as you go along. My relatives are really impressed with my bag and it will last for years and years. I've always been a craft person and this has opened up my world being able to use leather work techniques on different fabrics and papers.
Response from Creative with Nature:Really glad you enjoyed your course Linda. Thanks for coming back. Xxx
I’m a big fan of Victorian stained glass and I’ve always wanted to learn how it’s created. This course, run by Laura Barnes at Joe Gregory’s willow workshop, showed us how to create a small piece, step by step and take the piece home. I loved it.
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks so much for the the review and glad you enjoyed the day. joe. xx
An informative, hands on course, brilliantly led by Laura. Learned plenty of skills cutting glass, using lead and soldering. Was great to come home with two stained glass pieces to remind us of a great weekend!
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks for the review adrienne. really glad you enjoyed the weekend. joe. xx
Really informative and fun time with teacher Laura at todmorden. Never thought I could learn and master so much in just a weekend. It has instilled a need in me to continue and master the process even more now , with more adventurous projects .
Met some lovely likeminded people on the course as well . Recommended!
Response from Creative with Nature:That's great paul. thanks for taking the time to leave a review and glad you enjoyed the weekend. Joe. xx
Had a great time on a two day log basket course with Joe. She was very patient and I learned a lot, came home with a great log basket and a bucketful of enthusiasm to continue. Throughly recommend.
Response from Creative with Nature:thank you for such a lovely review! well done on a fab basket!! joe. xx
I loved these two days. As a complete beginner, at the end of day one I wondered how any of us would ever come away with a basket worth having, yet by the end of day two, like magic, we each had a log basket to be really proud of! The course was well planned and paced and Joe, as well as being a lovely person, is such a good teacher. She explained everything so well and so simply, yet not in the slightest bit patronising, just encouraging, reassuring and very complimentary about all our efforts. Thank you Joe, you've certainly kindled a little fire...
Response from Creative with Nature:thank you andrea! so glad you enjoyed your time. superb basket!! joe. xx
Very good flow, teaching style, very enjoyable. Laura is very helpful, responsive and approachable.
Only thing is, I arrived second to last, and then the last person and we didn’t know anyone’s names. Not sure if we’d missed introductions.
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks so much marie! glad you had a good day. joe. xx
A really great course. A room of people who had never made baskets before, yet after two days we had all created something beautiful. Joe is an excellent teacher, very clear, spreading her time equally between everyone, and sharing her great depth of knowledge and enthusiasm generously. I would have considered this a bargain at twice the price.
Response from Creative with Nature:ah thank you so much helen!! really glad you enjoyed the weekend. joe. xxx
I had the most fantastic day, met nice people, and I couldn't believe how gorgeous my silver jewellery was!! Our teacher Laura was brilliant and very friendly. I really had a lovely day
thank you, would love to hear of a slightly more advanced course in the future :)
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks jude! really appreciate the feedback, i'll pass onto laura.
Excellent course, very friendly and informative. Would highly recommend.
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks clare. really glad you enjoyed the day. joe gregory. xx
Absolutely loved it. Looking for another one to go to.
Response from Creative with Nature:Thank you Pam! Have a lovely Christmas. Joe. xxx
I attended my first mosaic course at the weekend and was really impressed. The workshop space has a positive energy and the building contains a wonder world of inspiring art pieces and materials.
Laura's teaching style, being both supportive and empowering, makes for a relaxed and enjoyable learning experience. Met some lovely people ...and we all created something to be proud of!. Brilliant way to spend a Sunday.
Response from Creative with Nature:Thanks Heather! yes Laura is a real asset to the business and town: ) Really happy you enjoyed your day. Joe. xxx
My daughter and I really enjoyed the class. Excellent tuition from Joe and a friendly atmosphere. Great value for money, ending the day with a professional looking William (my reindeer), who now has fairy lights and baubles all over him!
Will definitely be going to another of Joe's classes.
Response from Creative with Nature:really glad you enjoyed the course Judy! thanks for the lovely feedback. Joe. xxx
Sorry did not get as much as I had hoped for from this course.
Would have liked a lot more teaching and ideas on techniques .
There were only 3 of us so could have been prime opportunity for some great teaching of techniques.
Needed more tools between us as were sharing basic cutters and more resources were needed to make prints from.
If I had known before I would have been more than happy to bring more objects to make prints from.
I am a hardy northern gal, but it was cold in the work space too.
hope this is useful.
Response from Creative with Nature:thanks sarah i'll pass onto the teacher. xx
Both my granddaughter and I loved our day with Joe. Joe warned us that willow weaving can be addictive and she was not wrong. We are already looking to book on more courses with Joe next year.
Thanks to Joe’s expertise, her excellent instructions, her patience and her enthusiasm; we were able to make 5 different products.
This course is probably the best value course on here.
Response from Creative with Nature:lovely review! thanks Phil. really glad you both had a good day: ) joe. xxx
