Learning Zone

We love nothing more than the opportunity to create interesting, life-changing, health inspired material for your learning pleasure. Our evolving programme contains bite-size nuggets delivered through the teaching ‘techno’ wall, presentations and articles or larger chunks that take several sessions over weeks to digest.

Our approach is experiential. There’s no standing on the sidelines or sitting quietly at the back of the class. You’ll feel welcome, involved and supported so you are free to engage
and immerse yourself in the subject at hand.

“Tell me and I forget.
Teach me and I remember.
Involve me and I learn.”

Benjamin Franklin


We’re committed to making sure we all have fun as we teach and learn together. Being among kindred spirits, learning new skills and creating positive life change is life-enhancing. Bluesky Connexions at The Willow is ready and waiting to be your home from home.

The Teaching Kitchen

Being located in the same space where some of the healthiest, most taste-tantalising, free-from food is being prepared professionally makes life so much easier. Not only will you get to indulge in all The Willow has to offer, but through our teaching kitchen you can learn to re-create it at home.

Have you watched the TV chefs, bought the cookbooks, stocked up the cupboards and then faltered at the first hurdle?

Healthy cooking can be quite a stretch when you first begin, especially if you also have to cater to a food intolerance or allergy. We feel the best place to learn is among others under the guidance of a professional. Then you can ask questions, experiment and learn new skills.

We know that good nutrition and health go hand in hand. But it’s not just about food choice. How you store, prepare and cook your food impacts its nutritional value and can be the difference between ‘food as medicine’ and food that can harm. Taste and appearance are paramount too – especially if you’re cooking for kids.
