Full terms and conditions

My mission is to help people get creative with nature; to discover the joy of making and doing things with the wealth of natural materials all around us, using processes that are often thousands of years old. I feel passionately that our craft based heritage should be preserved; developed and passed on to keep these vital and engaging skills part of our everyday lives.

What I do

I provide workshops in a willow basketry and sculpture plus a small range of other traditional crafts in my large Georgian workshop space on Todmorden high street.
I provide teaching and training to a wide range of individuals, groups; organizations, companies and charities.
I have a Coffee Shop on the ground floor where you can purchase a range of my willow baskets and sculptures (woven on-site), craft kits, willow for weaving and you can also indulge in the finest and freshest rainforest alliance coffee, loose teas, a large selection of award winning cakes and simple savories should you so wish!

Gift vouchers

creativewithnature.co.uk offers gift vouchers which can be spent on any course that takes place at Creative with Nature.
Vouchers are available in £45, £95 & £190 denominations on the website or for any amount in the shop (over £10 minimum spend) and are valid instantly upon purchase.
Vouchers are valid for 12 months. Places on specific courses cannot be guaranteed as the teachers are predominantly individual craftspeople and artisans and the courses are therefore bespoke and offered in limited numbers.
All customers purchasing gift vouchers are subject to the terms and conditions here.

Full refund

Unforseen change of course date

In exceptional circumstances, I may need to change a course date.  If this happens, I will get in touch with you as soon as I can using the email contact details you provided. In this event I will endeavour to get you booked onto the same course as soon as possible. If this isn’t possible, as above, you will be entitled to change your course (time restrictions as above) or have a full course refund.  Please note: I will not be able to reimburse travel, accommodation or any other expenses you may have incurred in relation to the cancelled course.


Certain courses are subject to certain requirements specified by our teachers, such as age, health or accessibility. For example, it is not advised to be around lead whilst pregnant. Details of each course are available online but please check carefully upon making the booking that you comply with the requirements.

Safety & Insurance

All teachers have their own Public Liability Insurance and provide their own risk assessments. All students will be give a Health and safety talk at the start of classes for safe and proper tool use and any other pertinent information students may need.
If you are concerned about the safety or practice of any of the courses, please let me know.

Complaints & feedback

Your feedback is welcome, so please bring any comments or issues to my attention as soon as possible.  This will allow me the chance to put matters right, if required. If your issue is with the course or teacher (rather than the voucher process) please take this up with the maker on the day. However, if you are unable to resolve any issues directly with the teacher please let me know so that I can also look into it.

The above terms and conditions apply as a condition of purchasing and/or using any voucher, whether or not the voucher holder is the original purchaser.
