Greatly enjoyed it although it was sometimes a bit difficult following instructions from the other end of the table

Make a needle-felt Herdwick doorstop, 2 wise owls or a gorgeous bunny at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns

Had a wonderful day, I have no hesitation in recommending this course, was great fun learning a new craft amongst like-minded people, eating lovely food and sharing banter in a perfect setting. Annie is awesome and the Quirky workshops at the Cycle Cafe are a real treat day away from it all, can't wait to return!

This course is fab - I had no idea what a large and lifelike goose I would be making. I also thought mine would never look like the course leader's model. But it does. I am so proud of it and love having it in my garden. The course was extremely well managed, great fun and totally absorbing. I plan to do more.

I have been on a number of courses here and they have all been excellent. My herdwick doorstop is lovely and even admired by James Rebanks of "shepherds life' fame. The food is lovely too, I always eat too much!

What a great day !
The venue is lovely, with a great atmosphere. The course was excellent, all the materials required were provided. The tutor showed all the steps and no sewing is required. We all went home with our own doorstop - wonderful.
There are so many courses available, I will be returning.
Vouchers are available which make great gifts.

Excellent course by a very capable instructor, and we all came away with wonderful sculptures. Added to that, we had a delicious lunch in the cafe garden (price included in the workshop fee) in a really convivial atmosphere.

A fantastic 2 days, Tony is an excellent tutor providing the right level of instruction, support and advice whilst allowing you to get hands on from the start. The satisfaction of seeing your arrow fly from the bow you have crafted cannot be fully described. Thanks also to Annie and her team at Greystoke for keeping a team of newbie "bowyers" fed and watered with excellent food and refreshments- I cannot recommend the 2 days highly enough - go for it you won't be disappointed.

Willow sheep, hares, angels, hens & cockerels with Phil Bradley: a 'Quirky Workshop' at Greystoke Craft Garden & Barns near Penrith and Ullswater

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!
