Jo reviewed: Egg frame basket (1 day) workshop with Hopewood Baskets

"Sarah was great at sharing technique for making this lovely basket. Everything needed was provided. Basket weaving is quite hard on the hands. But very worth it. Whilst I would love to do this course on a willow farm, the railway arch works well. Decent places to get food if you forget your pack lunch! "

Hopewood Baskets responded:

" Hi Jo, thank you so much for your lovely review. So glad you enjoyed it! Hopefully the hands have recovered a little since. Lovely meeting you. Best wishes, Sarah "

Vivienne reviewed: Asymmetrical basket (2 day) workshop with Hopewood Baskets

"Completely brilliant course in every way. Sarah and Marcus are just the best tutors, friendly, knowledgeable and patient, allowing everyone to work at their own pace. The course was extremely well planned and we all went home with finished baskets! A couple of people had done a little basket making before, but most of us were complete novices and we learned so much. The workshop room was spacious, bright and airy and very close to the train station and city centre. If you're wondering whether to go, just book, I cannot recommend it highly enough!"

Hopewood Baskets responded:

" Hi Vivienne, Thanks so much for the wonderful review, it absolutely makes our day when we read such kind words - we really do want everyone to have a fab time, so we’re SO pleased that you did. "

Jackie reviewed: Asymmetrical basket (2 day) workshop with Hopewood Baskets

"This was an excellent course, particularly making some unusual baskets for beginners which was the main reason why I booked the class. Sarah and Marcus were great teachers and really patient with those of us who needed extra help because of getting confused and behind! The location was central, close to the station and was big and bright. I would highly recommend the course. "

Hopewood Baskets responded:

" Hi Jackie, We’re absolutely delighted that you had a good time and it was a pleasure meeting you and sharing skills. Hope your basket has many fun adventures with you! "
