"We loved the session. Lorraine was passionate about her work. We had two lovely living willow harlequin trees to take home. Highly recommend this workshop."
Hedges & Hurdles responded:
" I"m so pleased to hear you enjoyed the workshop, the Hsrlequin Trees looked anazing all lined up next to each other at the end of the workshop, well done to you both, I hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Lorraine"
"Really enjoyed the course, thank you Lorraine! The location is lovely and although we were outside and the weather on the day was cold & wet, we were under cover and there was hot tea and cake to warm the soul. I made 2 small obelisks and my friend made 1 small obelisk and a larger one (which I declined on the day as I thought it would be too tall to fit into my car!). Lorraine gave clear obelisk-making instructions/help throughout and I can't wait now to put my new obelisks in my garden, with maybe clematis to grow up, once they've dried out a bit more. Excellent workshop, thank you :)"
