"Absolutely fantastic! I can't thank Daisy enough for making it a fun day where we created a basket to take home and cherish."
"Daisy's workshop was really lovely. Her teaching is clear, gentle and encouraging and well paced. I was so pleased with the basket I made, can't wait for the berries... I could easily become addicted to willow! "
"My dad and I attended the berry basket workshop and it was an amazing day. We both enjoyed the activity as every step was explained clearly and Daisy gave support when needed."
"My daughter and I had a fabulous day making our Rustic Willow Baskets. We met some lovely people in beautiful surroundings."
