“Sebastien, his dad, and his grandparents, would like to tell you what a lovely morning we all had at your woodland whistle making class on Saturday. We all appreciated your great approach to the children, assuming that they would be capable of using the tools and giving them the freedom to learn by doing it themselves. To come home with a Swanee whistle was a bonus and was proudly displayed to Sebastien’s younger cousins later on. I am sure we will see you again one day but in the meantime, thank you very much indeed for Saturday. ”
