Willow weaving - for garden and home

About the Course

Due to current Covid 19 restrictions we will not be able to run any face to face workshops during November. We will review the situation post 2nd Dec and will hope to provide socially distanced workshops for small groups. We are very happy to run bespoke workshops for groups of 4 -6 people.

Willow weaving is a traditional skill that has evolved over centuries. Our workshops, give you a chance to learn different weaving techniques and build confidence to be creative in the items you make - for garden and home. Each workshop focuses on a specific technique and helps you gain confidence and skill in working with this wonderful natural material. Workshop themes follow the seasons from spring plant supports, summer gathering baskets to Christmas gifts and decorations.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Small group sessions mean that there is time to give individual attention and instruction. The aim is that everyone has a successful and creative experience learning how to work with willow and build up their skills.
Most of the willow used is home grown and when possible we introduce other natural materials.

All materials and simple tools required are supplied.

A very informative and relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning. My initial nerves of trying something new soon diminished, with the gentle instruction and guidance from Cathy. Before long our small group was happily weaving away, stopping only for delicious home-made cakes and biscuits. It was lovely to meet new people and learn new skills. I left with a substantial willow tree-skirt that was greatly admired over the Christmas period. Looking forward to signing up for another course in Spring.

I really enjoyed the course. I liked being in a small group as this meant that there was plenty of help available when needed. There were plenty of materials to choose from and it was good that all equipment was provided. The project was easily achievable in the time available and it was very satisfying to return home with a beautiful item. The refreshments were also excellent.

Response from More than Willow:

Thank you Jackie it was a real pleasure to work with you and I am so pleased you enjoyed it too! Hope to see you again in 2019.
