  1. Make a Willow Basket in a Day – Deb Hart

    The whole day was fantastic!  The course was very informative and Deb Hart explained everything brilliantly! Brian and Julie kept us well fed and watered all day! But the lunch was awesome! I expected sandwiches and got a fantastic salmon, new potatoes and veg lunch! Not to mention the home made pastries and cakes! Thank you all.

  2. Make a Willow Basket in a Day – Deb Hart

    Yesterday I attended the willow basket weaving workshop here with Deb Hart. It was really good fun and everyone managed to produce a basket! This is the second workshop I have done here with Deb and both have been lovely experiences. Brian and Julie provide a warm and welcoming venue with an excellent and plentiful supply of food and beverages. My gluten free diet was no problem at all. Deb’s teaching was inclusive and cheerful and when any of the group needed help she was there to get us on track again. Thank you all for a fun and productive day. I will be back. X

    We had a fantastic day yesterday on the basket weaving course with Deb Hart. I made a whole basket and had never weaved before and I loved it. The craft barn is beautifully decorated and the food was incredible. Pastries and cakes and a full lunch – superb! The day was worth every penny and I will be returning! Thank you Brian & Julie!

    The course was excellent well organised with detailed instruction on how to achieve the finished article. I came away proud of the copperfoiled heart panel I made, Carole Gray our instructor had so much patience. The venue was delightful the food excellent and such a warm welcome from Brian and Julie I would certainly recommend attending an art and craft day even if like me you have no experience , it was such fun.

  7. Make a Copperfoiled Glass Heart Panel or Mirror – Carole Gray

    Fabulous day enjoying learning how to make copper foiled hearts. We had a great day alternately relaxing and working together to create our pieces. We have been to a previous course with Carole Gray at The Butterfly Studio and we enjoyed it so much that here we are again! I am sure we will soon be back again. We learnt loads!! Will be practicing soon on our own little pieces!! Carole is an excellent teacher, both supportive and encouraging and very helpful. As before, Brian and Julie provided excellent refreshment throughout the day so that our creative sparks never flagged! Really lovely food and we were completely full up by the time we left clutching our ‘goodie bags of cakes’ and our newly created masterpieces. Thank you Carole, Brian and Julie for a lovely day. See you soon 🙂
