I would happily recommend this course. There were 7 us of there and between us we made 6 different animals! This must have been slightly challenging for Kate but she was very patient and supportive and the results were good. We worked in a small marquee and ate our very pleasant lunch in the garden. I was pleased with my efforts and my willow pheasant is proudly sitting on our garden wall.
Today I’ve had a really lovely day learning to willow weave with Kate. Talented and so patient I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher, she enabled me to come home with a very presentable sculpture that far exceeded my expectations and those of my family. Couple this with a lovely venue and a delicious lunch served by Dave, I cannot recommend this course highly enough. No experience needed and very good value, I shall definitely be going back
Just had a wonderful relaxing day today making a willow heron. Kate is a very patient tutor and helped us along with creating a beautiful heron. The project was perfect for me as I am a beginner to willow sculpting. As the weather was so good we were able to sit in the shade in Kate’s beautiful garden to work away building our heron. Thanks must also go to Dave for producing a delicious lunch and keeping us supplied with refreshments.
We had a really enjoyable day with Kate who is skilled and patience tutor, we came home with a fantastic heron, and i found it very therapeutic , highly recommend. I already have the next project in mind. Cannot forget Dave who put on a good spread for lunch.
Had great fun making a willow cockerel. Kate is a very patient and points out what would improve the sculpture you are making, making it more balanced and filling in any holes. (of which I had a few)
Really interesting and I would love to come back and make another animal.
I had a really good day out highly recommended.
What can I say! Kate was amazing, professional and so patient.I would highly recommend anyone to book on her work shop - Kate’s skills in willow sculptures and painting are amazing - very talented and kind person. Dave’s lunch was awesome and so tentative to my dietary needs-. Thank you for a very special day , you both went above and beyond xx
A fantastic day with Kate!
With Kate’s guidance and help, we both came away with our wonderful master pieces!
We were made to feel very welcome by Kate and Dave, and lunch was superb.
Highly recommend this workshop.
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Many thanks was lovely to meet you both
I booked this course with three girl friends, and it was a really fun day out. Kate provides one-to-one guidance throughout the day, and is very subtle in making adjustments (if needed) so that even the least-skilled weaver goes home with an impressive sculpture that closely resembles what you set out to achieve!
This is my second willow sculpture workshop with Kate having completed a marvellous heron first time around and this time a barn owl in flight. Excellent workshop, great to come away with a decent piece at the end of a very enjoyable day. Kate is relaxed, easy going and accommodating, guides you through the stages of sculpting the willow into your desired piece without fuss, stress or despair and if you trust Kate and go with the process you get amazing results! The day is therapeutic and we enjoyed Kate and Dave's hospitality with lovely tea, coffee and lunch. A great day, highly recommended.
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Many thanks for your kind words i so enjoyed the day lots of laughs and lovely sculptures
I enjoyed a great workshop with Kate this week. Kate offers a choice of sculpture you would like to make which is rare in this kind of workshop along with just the right amount of guidance in a relaxed environment. Lunch and refreshments are provided throughout the day and at the end you take home a fabulous sculpture. I would highly recommend.
What a rewarding day spent willow weaving with Kate. Fabulous tutor, so patient and encouraging. Lovely group of weavers too making a hare and herons, I made a chicken “Henny Penny”. Lovely to see how we each created our animals. Plenty of refreshments and lovely lunch all included and served by Kate's partner. What a lovely way to spend a very wet Wednesday. Thank you Kate and partner.
Spent a great day with Kate learning how to weave willow. I was a complete beginner but came away with an imposing 6 foot heron which I am delighted with and which has already garnered many positive comments. I will definitely be attending another course in the near future
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Hopefully see you at larkswold? Many thanks for a great day and your heron was superb well done!
The workshop was a birthday present for my partner and we really enjoyed the experience. We made life size pigs and Kate surprised us with a piglet to complete the family. Kate was very friendly and patient and her instructions were easy to follow. Lunch was delicious and plentiful and overall we had an excellent day. We absolutely recommend joining Kate on one of her workshops.
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Many thanks had a lovely day with you both and was amazed how well you did. Really brilliant
My friend and I spent a lovely day on one of Kate's willow weaving courses yesterday. Even though the weather was not kind we had shelter, a tasty lunch and a very warm welcome. Social distancing was observed throughout. I came away with a duck sculpture of which I am delighted. Kate is calm and has a way of giving you just the right amount of help to keep things on track. Thanks for a great day!
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Thank you for your lovely comments it was a pleasure meeting you both i had a nice day withl lots of laughs
A wonderful experience, in the perfect setting. I created an amazing willow hare. Kate is a brilliant tutor, never having done willow work before she gave me confidence to go for it, with lots of quiet and very patient help from her. The course gives a unique insight to this ancient art. With a real life result to take home with you. Can't wait to do another day.
Homemade lunch was delicious, but couldn’t wait to start the ‘ears “next on the ‘hare’ agenda. Thank you Kate.
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Thanks alison. I enjoyed the day and you made such an amazing hare.
Had a fantastic inspiring day with Kate on Saturday. I was a little apprehensive at first but was soon put at ease. I found Kate's instructions easy to follow and I didn't feel rushed at all. A great way to completely absorb yourself from the outside world and relax. The provided lunch was fabulous and home cooked. This workshop was bought as a Christmas present from my husband, and a great one it was and still is as I have a wonderful Heron waiting to go outside in the Spring. Thank you Kate for your patience.
I thoroughly enjoyed my recent willow weaving course with Kate. She is a warm and chatty host. She shares her enthusiasm and talent with every member of the group and ensures everyone leaves with a sense of pride in what they have achieved. Henrietta the hare will join the rest of the "garden gang " when the weather is warmer. I would thoroughly recommend this course to everyone.
Response from Kate Morrell willow sculpture:Many thanks for your lovely comments.
