About the Course

This is a great workshop for anyone wanting to weave things with natural materials to benefit their own garden. The pea frames add height and structure and support for tall climbing plants such as sweet peas and clematis or mange tout and runner beans and the low hurdles are perfect for peonies or low plants to nestle against or give protection to areas of the garden.

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

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials provided.
Plenty of tea, coffee and lots of homemade cake.
Please bring a sandwich or something for lunch to eat in the beautiful surroundings of the castle.
If you have them please bring loppers or sharp secaturs and a kneeling pad or cushion for your own comfort.

Want to review this course?

My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed the willow pea frame and hurdle course. Brilliant day. Fantastic venue at Usk Castle. Came back to do the basket weaving course later in the year.
Would recommend to anyone. Makes a fantastic present.
Amanda is a great teacher. Keeping the numbers on the course small means we all get to make the perfect hurdle and pea frame. Which have stood in my garden all year. Her daughters homemade cake was delicious too!

Venue easy to find and plenty of free parking space near the venue. Small friendly group so plenty of interaction and advice from the tutor. I went to learn how to make willow hurdles for my large garden. All materials provided and Amanda even brought us some cake for the tea breaks!
Strongly recommend.
