Thank you

I just wanted to thank you (and Willow) so much for a very enjoyable weekend. Having struggled through the years of lockdown with my husband’s illness and subsequent death, I now find it difficult to go out to meet new people and tackle new projects. Your relaxed approach and endless patience made a huge difference and I was amazed by what we all managed to achieve. It was also interesting to see how every basket was so different.

Fantastic weekend

Gerard and I spent two fantastic days learning how to weave baskets with Jon while Willow kept an eye on proceedings. It was a fabulous course and we heartily recommend it. Jon is patient and good-humoured and an excellent teacher. Hopefully we can sign up for a next level course next time we are in Norfolk. Many thanks Jon. Marcus

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.


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!

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.
