TESTIMONIALS FOR OUR WORKSHOPS:
"I really enjoyed the day and think that you both create a great learning environment. The instruction was great and there was sufficient time to learn and practice the skills and to also see other examples of basket making to give us an idea of other techniques/styles. The food was great and a nice addition to the learning. I can’t suggest anything that needs improving as I really think what you both provide is value for money, good learning and a community spirit. I have attended many different workshops over the years and I think that this was one of the best I have attended as I gained a new skill and felt supported in gaining it." Deanna, Melbourne.
