An informative and very enjoyable course suitable for absolute beginners.

Rachel was an excellent tutor and Hector’s House provided an ideal setting.

I would thoroughly recommend it.

Both the course and venue were great. Rachel made us all feel at ease and gave clear instructions whilst allowing us to work at our own pace. Make sure you’ve got room in the car to take your angel home afterwards!


Mini Workshop- Wild Woodland Spa (Course inactive)

In-person course
Kate Burnage - - #35524

I thoroughly enjoyed the Wild Woodland Spa mini workshop at Eccleshall Woods. Rachel is an excellent tutor; engaging, interesting and most supportive. I felt as if I had achieved something by the end of the evening and came home with a number of lovely products that I had made under her watchful eye. I have used some these since: they are far superior to shop bought ones. I'm looking forward to taking this new interest much further.

Woodland beauty- Spring Spa (natural cosmetic making from woodland plants and trees

In-person course
Tricia - - #35164

Excellent! A fun and fast paced day, learning how to make lots of different products and finding out about the properties of different ingredients. Rachel created a friendly atmosphere and was flexible with which products you wanted to make, so you gained even more from the course. I'd thoroughly recommended it.

Response from Ecclesall Woods Craft Courses:

So glad you had a good day Tricia- you were on fire with the soaps and balms! Thanks you for the review, lovely to meet you and hope to see you again in the future.

I thought the day and the tips given by Dave was excellent. I have made at least 11 sticks so far and I'm a bit of a stick nerd. Thanks for an informative day, very relaxed style. Would recommend it to anyone. Bill Knapp

A thoroughly enjoyable day. I've been wanting to start stick making for some time and feel I have all
the know-how now to get going. Great instructors and a nice bunch of folk participating. Very pleased with my first stick as well. Highly recommended.

Spent a fun day learning how to do willow sculpture. My hare actually resembles one and I am not the most artistic of people! Tutor very warm and helpful. I bought some more willow at the end and am currently making a friend for Hartley the hare! Well worth it. Thanks.

Amazing day, really patient tutor who took us step by step through making and let us work at our own pace and more importantly mine actually looks like a hare, even the husband was impressed, Will get doing more with Rachel in future.

Very enjoyable day on the Willow Hare course. I'd not done any willow work before but actually came out with something recognisable as a Hare! The course was very well taught by Rachel who kept a good balance of chat, demonstration and instruction so that we could all work at our own pace. A very enjoyable day. I'd recommend this course.

In-person course
Barbara Young - - #29166

I really enjoyed the day and came home with a lovely basket. There were examples of finished baskets, but we were free to choose the design we wanted - everyone's was different! Help was at hand all day with good demonstrations, but also one to one when needed. The course was held inside and the cafe was open as it was a Saturday.
