  1. Hen Party -Willow Hearts – Karen Lawrence

    I booked Art and Craft Days for my friends hen party and it was amazing! We did willow weaving with Karen and made some beautiful willow hearts. Brian and Julie were so accommodating, we even had warm scones with our afternoon tea I was so impressed, nothing was too much. I would highly recommend them for any craft lover, and for people that want to have that relaxing experience. I will be going back- to one of the craft sessions when I am next in the area for sure! Thanks so much Brian and Julie!

  4. Rush & Willow Christmas Decorations – Karen Lawrence

    Thank you we had a lovely morning starting with a warm & friendly greeting. Karen’s demonstrations & structions were very clear & easy to follow. The resources that were supplied were of good quality and with plenty of embelishments to choose from. We learnt a great deal and made some lovely willow decorations. We were given enough willow & rush reeds to make more at home – which between us we made a further 6 and lots of little stars with the leftovers. The refreshment were lovely too, tea/coffee, mulled wine (alcoholic & non alcoholic) with homemade cakes or mince pies.

  5. Rush & Willow Christmas Decorations – Karen Lawrence

    I so enjoyed the willow workshop on Monday. I feel I’ve discovered a new lifelong love and have already ordered myself some supplies to keep the new skills fresh! The group was a lovely bunch and Karen was a superb, patient and approachable teacher. Her willowcraft skill was nothing short of inspiring! It was so worth the journey and even worth getting a puncture for! Brian, I can’t thank you enough for your help in changing the tyre: it was above the call of duty!

    The Butterfly Studio is a super venue in a truly lovely bit of the country and your warm hospitality made me feel immediately welcome. I will definitely be returning for further workshops. Many thanks and warmest regards,
