Beginners Round Basket & Garden Basket Workshop Testimonials! 20/9/23

Last week I began my new teaching term with both the Beginners Round Basket workshop and the Garden Basket workshop.  It’s so great to begin the Autumn on a high with 2 workshops full of the most fantastic students.  I wanted to share with you their feedback because it always means so much to me and frankly, this is why I do what I do!


“Dear Sarah, Thank you for a fantastic day of basket weaving today . I am so pleased with the basket I have brought home ! It is a credit to your teaching skills that all the finished baskets looked splendid despite the fact that we were all beginners.

The lunch and cake were delicious and made the whole day a treat .  Good luck with all your ventures in ensuring that this ancient craft continues. Best wishes, Julia” (Attended Beginners Round Basket Workshop 13th Sept).
“Hi Sarah,

I know you’ll have had another busy day of teaching today but I just wanted to put my fingers to my keypad and say thank-you so much for the day yesterday.
You were full of enthusiasm and sparkled with all of us throughout the whole day.  I bet you were a very tired lady when you got home but it made the whole day very special.
I may have the bug now for more basket making so don’t be surprised if I pop up again at another of your courses.  This particular basket is going to be used to hold the confetti at our daughter’s wedding next May….it was really fortunate that she needed a basket and then found out I’d booked to make one!
Bravo to a very talented (and patient) teacher.

“What an excellent, thoroughly enjoyable day. I felt I learned so much, not just about the practical side of basket making but also about the history of the craft. Sarah was a wonderful teacher and her enthusiasm knew no bounds. I also (amazingly) ended up with a gorgeous basket! Thank you Sarah for a fabulous day. ” (CraftCourses Review from Sarah who attended the Beginners Round Basket Workshop 13th September).
“Hi Sarah, had a really wonderful day at your workshop yesterday – what an inspiring teacher and so pleased with my little basket – perfect for a bit of autumn apple picking. (Instagram comment from Camilla who attended the Garden Basket Workshop 14th Sept).
