Here is some feedback from our workshop attendees:-

"Bert is an excellent teacher and his expertise, patience and good humour made the workshop very helpful as well as fun. It was very satisfying to make a start on learning a new skill.  This was the first time I'd been to Bay Tree Cottage and I came away with a very positive impression indeed.  I will look forward to booking on other courses/workshops in the future."
