I've always been very creative and artistic so I decided to attend a willow weaving workshop myself and thoroughly enjoyed it and was hooked. I set up my workshops 4 years ago and have met some wonderful people who have sculpted some fantastic sculptures. I also work away from home at various venues across Leicestershire and I work on commissions and also sell my work on ebay along with my artwork
"Thank you Kate for a most fabulous day. It was great fun and we all were able to make some fabulous willow sculptures with your help that will look great in the garden. So much nicer to have a piece made by ourselves rather than bought. I would highly recommend this fun day of crafting and am sure we shall book again. "
"Well, I’m very pleased with the stork that I made with the help of Kate & I think I learnt something. The course was in a lovely garden & it was nice to spend a day outside. I may have learnt more. I didn’t always quite understand what I was aiming for. The group was 1/2 inside & 1/2 out ( people’s choice). It may be that had we all been pulled together for what to do at the next step or all in 1 place we could have learnt more from each other & heard more advice given to others. Sometimes work had to be undone as progression had gone too far when left to one’s self. But all in all I’m very pleased with my sculpture"
"I attended Kate's course never having done it before. From start to finish I had a brilliant day. As it was a sunny day we had the choice of working inside the workshop or outside in the garden. A lovely lunch was provided and plenty of drinks.
The course was to make a sculpture so I chose a heron. I was very pleased with how it turned out and Kate guided us all through the different stages.
I met some lovely people and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
I just need to decide where to put in my garden now,
Thank you Kate and Dave for a lovely day."
"This was my second attendance at one of Kate’s willow weaving days and I loved it as much as the first one. Fab day - mastering the delights of WW with Kates expert (& patient) advice. Great food and of course being able to take away a completed work of art for friends and family to admire! I will definitely be returning - Thankyou. "
