Creative With Nature offer fantastic courses in lovely Todmorden. The studio space is really lovely and has often changing exhibitions with work for sale at really tempting prices. Joe, the workshop leader, is friendly and attentive. I’d recommend just popping in if you’re passing to look at examples of what you could go on a course to make.
Rosie Grant
Had a fab day at Joe’s Trophy Stag Head workshop, she is a very patient lovely lady who explains everything so well that any novice can understand. Had a really great fun day out and came home with a lovely stag head for the home. Thank you Joe!!
Jo Johnson
I had a fabulous day making a willow reindeer. Jo is a great tutor – very patient and helpful. I was amazed that I was able to produce something so wonderful in a relatively short day. It’s been much admired and will look beautiful with a few Christmas lights on. I thoroughly recommend Creative with Nature and look forward to a chance to make another willow structure for the home or garden. Thanks again Jo – great day.
Debbie Wright
Joe ran a workshop for our local WI group, making woven willow hearts. 12 of us joined in and we were amazed could create the heart in the time allocated. Joe is a great tutor, relaxed and easy going and we’d happily rcommend her workshops.
Maggie Thompson Jones
I attended a 3 hour course today and it was great. Weaving is something I’ve always wanted to have a go at and this short afternoon gave me a chance to produce a couple of small items like a star and wreath.
Patient teacher, small class, reasonable price! What else – lovely area!
Annie O'brian
I did a 1 day frame basket course in September with friends Lynne and Christine. Since then I’ve been hooked on willow, did a bit of research on the internet etc. and have begun working on sculptural forms. Just wanted to say that, thanks to Joe, I’ve now had a piece selected for the Beveley Art Gallery Open Exhibition!
