What a fabulous day.
This is the second willow workshop I have attended with Rachel as the instructor and she is very good at demonstrating what to do in short manageable chunks and also putting people at ease.
We had plenty of refreshments and homemade cakes delicious.
The structure of the day worked well for me we were busy but you could do as much or as little as you wanted and we achieved so much it was amazing.
I had a lovely day! Rachel was extremely knowledgeable and very supportive of our efforts. Lots of encouragement and praise! I think we were all very pleased with our end products 😀 The pace of the day was just right, and we had plenty of hot drinks and homemade treats to fortify us throughout. Would thoroughly recommend.
OMG i went and made a deer that looks like a deer!!! So pleased really recommend this to anyone- hard work (as you have to concentrate to make sure you shape it well) but lots of encouragement from Rachel and loads of help when you need it. Awsome
Fantastic day, I would highly recommend this class. Rachel was lovely, friendly and made everyone feel relaxed and welcome. Instructions were very clear and we were guided through every step for the making of our first soap then encouraged to have a go ourselves with Rachel nearby to offer advice and help. Lots of lovely products to bring home cant wait to use them.
This was such a fantastic workshop, I had a thoroughly enjoyable day! Rachel was an amazing tutor with so much knowledge, such a lovely person. I learned loads of ways to produce beauty products, the handouts were brilliant, the venue was unique, comfortable and welcoming. I would love to return and do another course, thank you!
A fantastic day - well it did start with cakes! We made a range of soaps, some from scratch then were able to create a variety of products of our individual choice (my son loves the blues busting beard wax and the energising beard oil, I’m finding the joint cream very good). Rachel is a great instructor, she gave us lots of information and recipes, guided us when we needed it and let us get on when we felt confident to do so. By the end of the day we all had a huge range of products and felt we’d learned a lot, I’m definitely going to start making my own herb infused oils and trying more of Rachel’s recipes.
What a great day! Brilliant well structured, hands on course. The morning was soap making, starting easy and building up to making soap that feels like you're doing a science experiment. The afternoon involved a variety of products tailored to each of us and what we fancied making. Rachel was a great tutor with lots of knowledge about the materials that we were using and the products we made. We didn't only go away with lots of goodies but also got plenty of very useful hand outs so we can carry on making at home.
Fantastic course that I would highly recommend. The venue was wonderful and Rachel the course tutor was absolutely lovely, very knowledgable and happy to guide us through making lots of different products, which we took home at the end of the day. The booklet we received was great too so now I can make the products at home as well. Thoroughly enjoyable and lovely to meet so many nice people on the day, can’t wait to do another course!!
Amazing course I was kept busy all day. Lots to smell, try and make. Well paced and plenty to do and take home. Rachel treated us all as individuals and tailored the afternoon of the course to our tastes/ desires. Lots of tea, buns and a warm fire too what more can a girl want? Can’t wait for her next course.
This was a great hands-on, full day of making. It was well structured, with Rachel guiding us through soap making in the morning, then giving us freedom to have a go at the other bits like salves and bath bombs later in the day. It was a lovely friendly atmosphere and I went away with an incredible collection of bath time goodies!
