22 November 2016 • Learn The Art of Basket Weaving

I undertook this class with no prior knowledge of basket weaving. Ruth was a well organised tutor; having plenty of examples to share. We were walked through each stage and given plenty of advice and support as we progressed. Although I did not have a very advanced sample produced at the end of the workshop I have felt confident to continue under my own steam at home. The combination of setting, small group workshop, supplied refreshments and capable tutor made for a great day. I would say good value for money.
