Jane reviewed: Kindling/blanket basket (2 day) workshop with Hopewood Baskets

"Who would have thought someone who's never done anything like this before could come away with not only a completed basket but one which was for purpose in just a weekend? Not me, that's for sure, but thanks to Sarah and Marcus I completed the course and thanks to their tuition, guidance, extensive knowledge and immense patience I did just that. How chuffed am I? Immensely. Would I recommend? Yes, wholeheartedly. Thank you both for a mentally exhausting weekend and such a wonderful result! "

Hopewood Baskets responded:

"Hi Jane. What an amazing review! That really means so much to us to hear, as we really do want everyone to love the experience of weaving as much as we do....even if it does exhaust the cognitive powers after two full days! Great effort coming in with a log basket as your very first basket, what an achievement! Absolute pleasure meeting you, and hopefully see you again in the future. Best wishes, Sarah and Marcus "

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 "
