Trish and Richard reviewed: Spoon carving in the woods

"This was a wonderfully calm, relaxing and mindful few hours in the woods near Reading. Amazingly patient teacher - Suz - who was very good at explaining, and helpful when needed. Hot chocolate made on open fire, beautiful bluebell woods and a variety of birds singing in the trees. Spoon has to be left a few days before sanding as it is green wood, so looking forward to the next stage. We (my husband and I) enjoyed the whole process and we left with another piece of wood to make our next spoon. Give it a go - great fun, and very mindful experience. Thank you Suz."

The Coppice Co. responded:

"Thank you Trish and Richard!"

Claire Hall reviewed: Willow Trug Workshop in the Woods

"This was a really wonderful day! Thank you so much Suz - I felt so proud at having woven my basket (with your help!) - a thing of beauty, and practical too. The setting was magical - being in the middle of a wood with the sounds and sights of nature for a whole day - such a refreshing experience for this Londoner. "

The Coppice Co. responded:

"Hi Claire! Thank you for your review!"
