Description

Get started with the fundamentals of willow weaving simple items on this one day introductory workshop.

Maximum Workshop: 4 People

Time: arrive for 10am start - finish 4pm

Venue: Craft Workshops, Grassroots Garden Centre (separate studio within the grounds), Stalbridge Road, Henstridge BA8 0SA.

We will learn about the most popular types of willow and what they are most suitable for eg basket weaving, outdoor structures, etc as well as their availability during the seasons of the year.

You will have opportunity to make two 'starter' projects, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. These may vary but will include a bird feeder or handing nest (can be adapted to hold small hanging plants instead), and a handleless table basket.

You will be provided with the willow which you need for your projects plus the use of some very simple tools.

All you will need to bring are some light gardening gloves (willow making can be quite tough on the fingers to start with and wearing gloves makes this a bit easier) and possibly an apron to help keep you from becoming damp whilst working with the pre-soaked willow (this will be done before you arrive as it takes several hours but we will discuss willow preparation and soaking times during the workshop).

Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the session. Please bring lunch, snacks and any other refreshments which you would like which are appropriate for the length of workshop which you have booked.
