Carol grant reviewed: Crochet for beginners

"I went on this course as I wanted a beginners class in order to help me start my crochet experience. Unfortunately I am still unable to even do the simplest of crochet techniques - although the afternoon was lovely I did not learn anything and still unable to even hold the crochet hook in the correct way - this may be down to me but I did have some expectations which is why only 2 stars- better if you have some knowledge and want to progress but not for a complete novice."

Tresillian House responded:

"Dear Carol, so sorry to hear that you did not make the progress you had hoped. I have perhaps a solution and will contact you directly. Best wishes, Alison at Tresillian House"

Barbara woodcock reviewed: Willow Obelisk Sculpture

"An excellent course in a lovely setting. With the expert guidance of the tutor I came away with a very handsome obelisk. A friendly group of people and a great day out."

Tresillian House responded:

"It was wonderful to meet you and the group and I agree - it was a great day. I am amazed at how much we achieved in a one day workshop, ably guided by Kate. We will do this course again!!!"

Brigit Chisholm reviewed: Willow sculpture workshop at Tresillian House

"I so enjoyed my days course. We were 4 in the class in a warm garden room in Alison's garden. All equipment is provided with hot drinks and an excellent warm lunch. I was told I was being ambitious for a novice, with my desire to make a pig-who tried to leave as Dumbo until Kate sorted his ears- he is of course now perfect!! I started as a novice and loved the skill and tuition that Kate gave us -moulding the weaving into muscles to get a great look. I drove a long way for a course I really wanted to do- Nil regrets and a stunning pig! Thank you Kate for great teaching and such a good day. Thank you Alison for a smashing stay the night before - made it very relaxing 10/10 -thoroughly recommend this course."
