A thoroughly enjoyable day trying a new craft. Clear information and instructions. Very relaxed atmosphere and setting. Sandra was lovely, enthusiastic and helpful. I was so pleased with the result am already looking at the 2 day courses.
Response from Creative with Nature:hi jan, thanks so much for the review: ) i'll let sandra know she'll be very happy.
Booked this for a Christmas and thank you present for my sister and it was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the contemplative nature of weaving with willow and Joe is so knowledgeable about her craft. Todmorden and the surrounding area is so beautiful we loved it. We stayed locally and had two days of quiet, precious sister time. And made baskets we love. What could be better.
Response from Creative with Nature:that's lovely to hear! thanks so much for the review and letting me know. joe. xxx
Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, in fabulous new premises. Joe is a great teacher, I'm amazed that I was able to make a basket in two days. I wish I lived closer, would love to do more.
Response from Creative with Nature:ah that's lovely christine thanks you! you did a lovely job and a particularly nice class: )

My wife booked me on my first course as a Birthday present and I've been hooked ever since! I've been on 3 so far and I have loved every single one, the teaching is brilliant and the baskets I've made are beautiful and its amazing to see how far I've come. I cant wait for the next!
Response from Creative with Nature:Hi John,
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
