Join us for a thoroughly festive willow weekend creating beautiful crafts to decorate your home or garden or to give away as lovely gifts. This course provides an opportunity for you to learn all about willow, how to grow it, prepare it and weave with it using a variety of techniques. We will be using vibrant fresh cut willow, dried willow and a selection of hedgerow material such as dogwood, hazel and birch. During the weekend you will make wreaths, trees, stars, angels, reindeer, rustic hearts and more! The course is suitable for both beginners and those with some willow experience.
