Basket Weaving Class review by Kylie Malcolm

Libby Jun 2021


The venue was great, esp with coffee shop. I would have liked to have a second session so we could finish the baskets. The teacher was good, materials supplied were plentiful. Perhaps a diagram of how to finish the basket would have been a good idea, just to remind us when we get there.

It was an amazing class, the teacher was extremely lovely, kind and helpful- she had a clear way of teaching and it was not rushed

Lee-Anne Ryan May 2021


I enjoyed the class although there are some things that would definitely make it better. There needed to be an example of what we were making so we could see what it was supposed to look like. The teacher was not clear in her instructions at the beginning and it was difficult to get started. As no one will be finishing the basket on the day an information sheet with details on how to complete the basket would be helpful to take home.
Didn’t really feel it was value for money.

Great workshop space. Bonus being attached to a coffee shop - liked being able to take coffee in with me. Alison was a friendly and helpful instructor. Everything needed was provided

Veronica Hutchison May 2021


The teacher was good at explaining and demonstrating and always happy to help. She made sure everyone in the class knew what they were doing to progress. It was great we were able to take materials home to complete the basket.

Kym Craswell May 2021


I loved learning the technique of basket weaving! The teacher was so helpful and patient. What a lovely, relaxing way to spend a Saturday! Plenty of materials to choose from, and enough to take home and finish any unfinished work.

What a fantastic skill to learn! Amy, our teacher, was very friendly, kind, and approachable. The class was nice and chilled, and we all walked away with a completed project, or materials to complete it at home, as well some information sheets on what we had learnt. Twas a most enjoyable evening.
