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.

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.

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.

Loved it! First time doing Mosaic and both my mum & I managed to make 3 house numbers in our day, Christmas pressies sorted! It really was torture to have to stop! The cellar proved a treasure trove of extra bits & pieces of broken bits, which I preferred to the factory squares we had to begin with. Laura was great, let us get on with it but there when we needed her. Loved it, and would love to do it all again!

Laura is an encouraging and supportive teacher who helped me produce a mosaic I’m really proud of. Creative with Nature is a great welcoming and inspiring space in lovely Todmorden. Highly recommended.

A totally new craft for me and I loved it! Laura is an excellent teacher. I was quite nervous working with glass, but Laura was really patient and after a while of practicing with cheap clear glass I felt much more confident working on my final piece. A most enjoyable weekend, I was really impressed with my results.

Brilliant 2 day course, I had only made one basket previously, and was delighted witht the log basket I was able to make over the weekend . Joe is a great teacher, I learned loads, and it has definitely whetted my appetite for more!

Response from Creative with Nature:well done Averil! a great basket you made and good company too. xx
The ethical trophy stag head sculpture workshop was a lot of fun with excellent tuition from Joe. We learnt so much about willow and how it was grown and treated before we worked with it. I knew so little about it before and now I'd like to craft with it again.
I'll definitely be booking another workshop in the very near future.

I loved this course!
I had booked on an earlier course but was then unable to go and Joe was really accommodating about me rebooking.
The course itself was great! Lovely people, great tuition and plenty of willow to weave.
I came home with an asymmetric log basket which I adore and which has been widely admired by family and friends.
Thanks Joe! X

Response from Creative with Nature:thanks clare! really glad you enjoyed the course. well done on a fab basket!! xx
I learnt more from Laura in an hour than what I’ve ever learnt from books or you tube on mosaics. Clear direction with a wonderful vocabulary Laura gave everyone encouragement and detailed knowledge of what tools and ingredients to use. An amazing day. Thank you so much. Will come back for the silver clay course.

I was amazed at my finished product. Jo was so patient with me as a complete beginner. She was very welcoming and provided beverages throughout both days.
I am looking forward to my next course.

Response from Creative with Nature:thanks for a lovely review marie! look forward to seeing you on your next Course. joe. xx
I would highly recommend this course. I had never done any basket weaving before and by the end of the second day I had an amazing basket to take home. It was entertaining and fun and Joe teaches in a really relaxed manner, in small class sizes. Everyone works at their own speed and you never feel like you are being left behind. I will definitely do another course with Joe.

I had a fabulous day with Joe making a willow hare sculpture. The workshop was a delight to participate in, I learned so much from Joe especially how to create strong sculptural shapes. I can highly recommend any of her courses; its been great to learn from a truly professional artist.
