About the Course

As the cold weather draws in and wild food becomes scarce this is the time of year when we like to do what we can to help the local birdlife. A great way to do this is to create a small birdhouse from willow.
The type of entrance that you create will vary depending on the type of birds that you wish to attract, it may be round or square, large or small and will measure approximately 32cm x 14cm.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer to.
Please note that working with willow and using small tools can be tiring on the hands and requires a good level of hand dexterity. this may be difficult to do if you have arthritis or a similar condition, so please let us know if you need buff willow instead of the traditional brown (which is much tougher) as it’s kinder on the hands.
Please wear clothing you are comfortable working in.
Refreshments are provided please provide your own lunch
