After releasing on Wednesday 31st January the next 14 Willow Sculpture Day dates to my MailChimp publicity mailing list I’ve been truly amazed and grateful to have received over 90 bookings! I also realise that not only have I yet to generally publicise these May – August dates but I’ve again unexpectedly just received further high profile magazine publicity. This means that I know you may have just gone to book a Willow Sculpture Day and found that places are no longer available for your 1st or 2nd choice. I always aim as best I can to accommodate your requests but due to willow commissions and other teaching commitments I will not be at present adding in extra Willow Sculpture Day dates for this summer.
If this saddens your heart, (as you wished to book a place for yourself or friends and family), the following three options may be of assistance to you…
1. I do have a publicity mailing list (with MailChimp), by going to my website Contact page, filling in the short form and ticking the box next to ‘SIGN UP TO OUR MAILING LIST!’ you will be able to join my upcoming courses newsletter and receive the next Willow Sculpture Day dates prior to general public release.
2. I do offer my own gift voucher service. Gift vouchers make great presents for family and friends. Gift Voucher details can be found on my website Courses page. On my receiving your gift voucher payment, you will be sent a personalised gift voucher card. Gift voucher recipients will receive advanced notice of my courses 3 times a year prior to the release of Willow Sculpture Day dates to my MailChimp mailing list. Gift vouchers are valid for 2 years from their issue date.
3. Very occasionally I do get cancellation places, these are usually at very short notice, (within 72 hours of the course taking place). If a cancellation occurs, rather than emailing, I usually quickly phone those on my waiting list. If you wish to be on the waiting list and for any particular Sculpture Days / dates please fill in the Contact page form on my website and make sure that I have a phone number for you.
Thank you again for all your support and I hope that I will be able to teach you how to make a willow animal or sculptural basket soon. Sarah X
