Weave your very own Christmas Tree from Willow ready to take home and decorate! We make our Willow Christmas Trees by supporting the upright Willow rods in a jig and then using Willow withies to weave the tree. We start in a similar way to making a garden obelisk using a tabletop jig, the weave is then changed and we end up with a beautiful, full-looking Christmas tree. There are different weaves that can be used to create your own design, every tree is unique. Suitability The workshop is suitable for adults and children (if accompanied by a paying adult). You will be able to work independently or in pairs. > Birtley Woodland Art Space: Workshops at this location are outdoors so please dress accordingly. We do have a large outdoor deck and shelter in the event of a shower.
