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.
Thank you for the excellent basket-making day on Saturday. It was great to have such an expert and patient teacher. I really enjoyed having a go at making a basket and look forward to using it for some time to come
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a really enjoyable day. Jackie and I are both thrilled with our baskets and enjoyed every step of the process in making them.
Thanks for today! I am sitting here admiring my basket with sore thumbs! Please let me know if in the future there is any opportunity to make a dragonfly.
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.
Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed the basket making day yesterday. It was a lovely day with great instruction – thank you.
If you will be doing any events making different items I would be very interested in attending.
A man floats on a big heavy log down a brown river so wide he cannot see the sides. The river flows rapidly but to the man it appears to move slowly because he cannot see the sides of the river.
It flows so strongly that the man can only move the log small degrees to the right or left by paddling vigorously with his arms. He cannot paddle the log backwards.
So is our ability to affect change for ourselves in the universe. The course is set.
Be like the Willow.
If you cut the willow back to it’s stump; it only grows back more vigorously.
Be like the Willow.
The easiest mistake on earth
is to forget to appreciate what you have right now,
May the Willow Gods be with you.
