It was the most wonderful day....really well planned and sorted to give us the very best of the time we had...I was just astonished at how fast the time went....I so rarely loose track of time ...and that shows just how powerful and absorbing the making became.

Thank you so much for such a lovely day in a magical setting. It was perfect. I really enjoyed the day and have been eyeing up my neighbours' grasses for my next basket :)

That was such a great day!
It was such a tonic to spend a day making in the woods - feeling very inspired to attempt another basket .


Wild pottery workshop - dig your own clay in the woods, bonfire/clamp kiln firings

It was so lovely to be able to work together communally and use our physical bodies to dig, knead, mould, sweep, build, blow, and wait! I really loved it and felt my body just relax and actually take up more space, sit more sturdily and feel more solid! It was an effect I wasn’t expecting!
Thank you so much again - for providing such a beautiful space with your energy, and for sharing these valuable crafts and techniques with us. What you do is so important.

Cordage is so magic. I've done more work on my netted bag, still loving it and it's nearly finished! Thanks for the the fabulous weekend, it really reignited my passion for all things wildcrafty. I loved the mindfulness session - and miss it now I'm back in the city and surrounded by noisy distractions. Really want to do your bone needle course next.

Thank you again Ruby for another inspiring and joy-ful experience. Each time I do one of your courses I feel more and more in tune with, and so grateful for, the amazing gifts from the wildness of this wonderful countryside.

Ruby- thank you for being such an inspiring teacher. It was the best medicine to be in the woods, making for the weekend and a most welcome meditation. I’m already busy spreading the word and loving my basket. Lovely to meet lots of inspiring and like minded people- thank you also for your good energy. Will keep an eye on future courses :)

We both had a delightful time creating our baskets with you and all participants in the stunning woods. Thanks for such inspiring and nourishing experience, for your fire and tea and for teaching us and caring so beautifully.
We feel so proud and happy with them, we put them next to our bed that evening! Couldn't part from them... kept on feeling and smelling them! Such joy they bring. Jeremy's basket is filled with our garden apples.

Thank you again for two such wonderful days of creative discovery, earthing and connectedness.
I especially appreciated your careful pacing and clear explanations of the whole process, with time also to just stop and take stock, reflect and celebrate. I just can't wait to do Level 2.

Being absorbed in such a beautiful activity in a beautiful place was very enriching and exactly what I needed. Thank you for making it so.

A peaceful and fascinating weekend in the Hornbeam woods with a kettle continuously on the fire, plenty of flapjacks and a stream of incredible information from Ruby about basket making and plants and land. I'm left with tingly fingers itching to do more. Thank you.

Thank you Ruby for giving such calm, unhurried and reflective sessions for us at the Retreat. The feedback was so positive about you, your energy, your tone and the work you inspired and guided. We are so delighted you were with us and would absolutely love to work with you again.

Just fabulous. Fun, creative, incredibly informative (thanks to you Ruby for your hugely inspiring teaching) and in a place of such simple beauty. Way beyond all hopes, this is a treat of an experience that I shall never forget - shared with lovely lovely people
