Had such a lovely time making our amazing baskets, really enjoyed it! We learned so much and shared a precious time with Nicki in a very relaxed environment. Thank you for a great day!

Brilliant course. Lovely tutors were very supportive and friendly and made the course very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
My daughter and I really enjoyed our day yesterday in the woods of the Surrey hills. We were immersed in the woods, sun shining, huge beech trees swaying in the wind.
A totally immersive day losing ourselves in basket weaving. Great tuition , lots of demonstrations and one to one. Thanks Jan and family for a lovely day with amazing baskets completed and families really impressed when we got gone.
Can recommend tipi making with Nicki- had a really enjoyable morning and came away with a beautiful plant support for the garden. Fun atmosphere, great teaching from Nicki and her husband. Delicious coffee and nibbles, so happy to have learned a new skill.
Response from Willowandyoga:Thanks Laura, it was lovely to meet you and we are so pleased you enjoyed the course.
Thank you Nicki and Brian for such a wonderful day, you made me feel so welcome, and I had such an enjoyable time making the most beautiful willow baskets. I went home feeling so inspired and with such a great sense of achievement :)
What a thoroughly enjoyable day. Nicki and her daughter Jaz were excellent tutors. Clear instructions, quick to help and really nice people. Nicki is very knowledgeable about all things willow and a great cake baker!
My husband thought perhaps I had bought the beautiful basket I brought home! Genuinely cannot believe what I achieved. Can’t wait to do another!
I so enjoyed this Zarzo basket making course last Saturday and I came away with two wonderful baskets. I would not have believed that I could manage to make two in one day but I did - it was well organised and thought through, and everything was prepared for us. We worked in pairs which was great because it meant that between the two of us we were sure to understand or remember the process, and what one of us could not remember the other could. It made for a friendly session too. Nicki and her assistant-husband were so expert at their craft and were always on hand to help. The village hall was easy to find and there was plenty of parking too. One of the best bits: I have an absolutely lovely Zarzo basket .... and I was a complete beginner. Thank you, both of you!
We had a fantastic day at the hut. Nicki and her husband made us feel very welcome and patiently explained everything. The basket making turned out to be great fun and this for sure not be the last time for me to work with willow. Never thought, that I could make something so nice on my first try. 😏
I really enjoyed this course, and was amazed by what we were able to achieve in one day. I went home with two beautiful baskets (or one basket and one platter). Nicki was a great teacher, and her husband Brian too. I never felt lost and there was always support on hand if I got stuck. Nice relaxed atmosphere, and amazing cake!!
Oh my goodness, what a fantastic course, I cannot believe what a beautiful basket I came home with and I made it!
Nicki's course was excellent because she loves to craft baskets and strikes an excellent rapport with her novice weavers. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient, particularly with me when I kept going wrong with the thin-to-thin weaving! The workshop is situated in a woodland and it was so peaceful and quiet that I came away really relaxed and happy and unphased by the prospects of getting stuck in traffic on the M25 and M4.
As for my basket, I love it! I am so pleased and grateful I have have made something so beautiful and useful and it has definitely whetted my appetite to learn more weaving skills. Thank you Nicki!
Goodness me! What an amazing course and what an amazing lady. Nicki, it was lovely meeting you. I was a complete novice and not at all confident in my abilities. Nicki made me feel at ease and got my creativity out of me. With her brilliant instruction, I created something quite remarkable in beautiful woodland surroundings. What more could I ask for? Brilliant day had by all with such fantastic company.
I would thoroughly recommend this course. I will be back! Many thanks.
