About the Course

Join us for one day willow work courses near Tonbridge.

We have been making all sorts of beautiful things in willow for the last few years in the lovely walled garden at Oxon Hoath Country Estate. Dragonflies, winter willow decorations, wreaths and swags... In Spring we focus on plant supports, hazel and willow obelisks, all from locally sourced materials. This year we will try woven living willow sculptural statement standard trees in pots. Sharon has been leading willow courses at Oxon Hoath and in many other locations and in schools. Living willow installations are also undertaken.

See Sharon's willow facebook page via the link button above. She won Gold for the willow garden - (Blackbird Academy) at Blenheim Flower Show, presented by Monty Don. But don't let that discourage you! ... the willow courses are for beginners and anyone! We work with a small group and at your own pace.
