    Just wanted to say thank you very much for a very enjoyable oval shopping basket making course yesterday! I had a great time and was really pleased with my finished basket for a first ever basket weaving attempt!
    Also our lunch was very scrummy (as it has been every time I have done a workshop) thank you and I was wondering if you could please tell me the soup recipe as I’m not normally that keen on soup but this one was delicious!
