Basket course review

Hi Jonathon Just a short note to say many thanks for the hugely enjoyable & informative 2 days. The course was everything I had hoped it would be, your explanations and demonstrations were excellent (even to a left-hander).It was so enjoyable I’ve ordered some willow so I can carry on at home!All the best, I may book on another course when I need more inspiration.

Dear Jonathon,

Thank you for such an enjoyable and useful two day course last weekend.  I would not have thought that I could produce two baskets from scratch in such a  short amount of time.  Thank you for making it all so accessible and interesting.  I am attaching a photo of one of my lovely new baskets in use.


Hi Jonathon,

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed today. Thoroughly engaging and friendly, you managed to cater for all aspects and the atmosphere was lovely. We’re both inspired to make more now, thank you!

I would just like to thank you for a wonderful weekend. You were so good with your instructions and so very patient! I really do feel I have learnt something, which is amazing for such a short course.

Basket course review

Hi Jonathon
Now that we are back on native Leicester soil, I thought that I ought to write to thank you for an excellent time of basketmaking and cake eating. Gill and I had a really  enjoyable and instructive day. We would have liked one of our grandsons to have been there to have had the chance to experience that teachers can be positive and inspirational, something he doesn’t seem to get at his secondary school. We have been singing your praises and perhaps word of mouth might encourage others to make the journey to rural Norfolk.

Hi Jonathan

Just need to say a huge thank you for today. The course was really fabulous, well paced and informative and you are a very patient teacher. I absolutely love my basket and it will get loads of use at Viking reenactment events in the future.

Thank you
