I will send you the willow that you need to complete the project and a document with instructions on how to prepare the willow in advance.
If you have your own willow dried or fresh please contact me so that I can advise you if it is suitable and if it is how to prepare the materials,
If the materials you have are suitable I will charge a reduced fee for the workshop please contact me to discuss.
Please note that you will need to allow time for the willow to be delivered and allow time for soaking.
Please contact me to discuss the workshops that you wish to do, you will need a suitable space to soak and prepare the willow you can choose from.
Buff willow (stripped willow) which will take 2 days to prepare or brown (with bark) willow which will take 5 - 6 days to prepare.
You will need
A computer or tablet with sound and access to watching the video via the internet.
A pair of secateurs or wire cutters/ pliers to cut the willow and plenty of room to move around ( willow is long it's easier to knock things over)
You will need somewhere to soak the willow e.g. a bath, old paddling pool, pond, makeshift container. covered in plastic sheeting, water butt, etc
Some large towels/ or sheets.
A large round food can or similar
