Libby Batacanin reviewed: Basket making for beginners using traditional willow basketry techniques

"I thoroughly enjoyed my day. I was welcomed and within a few minutes had a hot drink and flapjack. The instructions were very clear and Jonny and Becky were very patient. A lovely hot lunch for a very reasonable price. The day was value for money, I felt proud of my basket though it wasn’t the best of the group. I went with two friends who also enjoyed it. I would certainly consider doing another one sometime in the future."

"3 of us did this course the hosts John and Becky were very welcoming when we arrived. The day starts with a warm cuppa and cake. Then with lots of help and loads of patience from our hosts we all made a beautiful basket as did all the class. We had a great lunch made by a local supplier and of course followed by more cake. I would say a terrific fun day had well worth the cost. Would certainly recommend for people looking for something different to do."
