What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included along with drinks and snacks . I will be providing light refreshments, cake and fruit. I like to keep my attendee numbers low to enable me to provide support and advice where need and so the workshop participant number is limited to 8 participants attending.

Please also bring an apron or wear clothing that you like working in. Please note that working with willow can be tiring on the hands and will be difficult for you to do if you have conditions such as arthritis if this is the case please contact me as I many be able to assist you with using alternative materials.

You are welcome to bring your own secateurs and gloves if you wish to.

Further information will be provided at time of booking. Please note that each activity runs on a different day. For further details please visit my website by clicking on the button at the top of this page
