Small willow birdhouse workshop



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.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

Please note that working with willow and using small tools can be tiring on the hands and requires a good level of hand dexterity and strength. 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 please be aware this type doesn't have any bark but it is kinder on the hands.

Please wear clothing you are comfortable working in.

Refreshments are provided please provide your own lunch

I thoroughly enjoyed my willow weaving day. It was great to be able to have a whole day to do something creative and take home two obelisks for the garden and a dragonfly.
We were very well looked after will plenty of snacks, fruit and drinks. I recommend this to everyone.

Had a really enjoyable day with my sister on the willow piglet course. Jacqui was very knowledgeable and friendly in teaching us complete novices. Was a real bonus to be able to take home a fully completed willow pig. Would fully recommend it and I am interested in doing another course.

Response from Willow and Crafts:

Hi, Debbie thank you for a lovely review, it was a pleasure meeting you both.
I hope that the journey home went well
Best wishes

I had a fantastic day first time doing something on my own, I was made very welcome.
Food good.
Great teacher.
People can't believe I made the piglet myself (they said I must of bought it).
I also loved that everything was provided, it was so much easier.

Response from Willow and Crafts:

Im glad that you had a lovely time , thankyou for sharing
Best wishes Jacquie
