"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."
"I have wanted to try willow weaving for some time. Having been treated to a voucher by my family, I chose Kate’s workshop and was very glad I did.
Kate and her partner provided a warm welcome to their home and workshop. Kate was very supportive and patient with a real novice, offering suggestions and practical feedback as my sculpture took shape. A wonderful homemade lunch gave me a chance to explore the garden and see a small sample of the amazing and different sculptures that Kate has done.
Time flew and after a wonderful and rewarding day, I left with a pheasant sculpture that received many compliments from my family.
I have recommended this course to friends and family and look forward to going again next year to make a new sculpture!"
"What a fantastic day we had! I would never have believed I could make a heron out of willow, but with Kate's expert tuition I managed it. She is an extremely talented lady, and so helpful and patient, I thoroughly recommend her course.
My daughter, Laura, made a lovely hare, and now we are planning to go back and make more animals.
Alison was an excellent host. We were well suppled with refreshments throughout the day, and the lunch was delicious. There was plenty of parking available on site, and afterwards we had a stroll around Alison's gorgeous garden."

" Dear Ruth
Thank you very much for your kind review and comments. I am delighted you had such a really good day. The group were good and despite all being beginners, grasped the principles of the weaving quickly - all ending up with brilliant sculptures. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best wishes, Alison at Tresillian House"
"The weaving course with kate was a lovely day and I left with a huge heron that is my pride and joy. The day was gentle, group was small enough to ensure time and attention from kate. Venue was set in the grounds of trissellian house beautiful garden and plenty of pre course information and directions. Very much recommend this for a beginner like me or more experienced weavers"
