Weaving peaframes and hurdles at Usk Castle Chase

Grosmont gardening club happy with their new structures!


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.

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 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 new barn.
If you have them please bring loppers or sharp secaturs and a kneeling pad or cushion for your own comfort. Please dress warmly as we will be in an open ended barn.

Thanks Amanda for such an enjoyable and productive day. I love what I took home today! Your teaching skills were impressive and I am amazed at how much covered in one day. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to my friends.

This was my third course with Amanda and no doubt I shall be back for more! As I'd had my wrist taken out of plaster only the week before, she kindly let me bring my daughter to do the weaving work whilst I took notes and photos, ate cake and drank tea. We both thoroughly enjoyed the day, the venue and the convivial company, then took home a pea-frame and hurdle we were proud of. Both now have pride of place in the garden - my daughter's!

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.
