An excellent day out. Beautiful setting, clear instructions & help. People can't quite believe that I made Harris, my willow hare.

As three art teachers, we had a wonderful and very informative day out on the willow course. Phil and all the Cycle cafe staff were lovely and it was a real pleasure to take part - not to mention our superb, quirky willow hares we made! Would thoroughly recommend!

My sister and I visited today to take part in the Willow Deer making course and we loved it. Phil Bradley was great at guiding us through the process of willow weaving and the lunch and refreshments we received from Annie were great. The glorious weather certainly helped make it a great day too, but best of all we got to take home our finished deer sculpture. We will definitely be back!!!
