In this willow weaving workshop, we will look at willow in its dry and wet states and begin to handle and learn techniques to manipulate it. once we have a good understanding, we will then immerse ourselves into the wonderful rhythm of weaving. You can work on your own on a small piece, or in a friend or family group to create more ambitious scaled work. Remember it has to fit in your vehicle at the end of the session! At Creative Nature HQ, we differ from other crafts courses in that we also give opportunities to groups or businesses to create artworks that can be donated to community groups and schools. You take home unique memories, new skills and an improved wellbeing. Each participant has an allocated amount of willow . If your piece extends a lot further, an additional charge may be incurred for the extra willow needed to finish your piece. We can decide this together during the making process. Your tutor, Stephen, has been working with willow for over 30 years and trained as a sculptor and Forest School teacher. Each student has an allocated amount of willow .
