Everything you need to weave a fab willow star and wreath! PLUS EXTRA WILLOW TO MAKE ANOTHER WREATH & STAR. Switch the fairy lights on, the star brightens up any room! Great for beginners to willow. Willow wreaths are mostly brought out at Christmas time when they add a lovely bit of colour and light at a dark time of year. But like puppies, wreaths are not just for Christmas! They look great just as they are, with a simple string decoration or with fairy lights. Look forward to Spring and add some daffodils or even some little eggs! Flowers and a bit of greenery are always a good addition and hydrangeas look really lovely in Autumn. Don't forget the star, hang it on the wall, prop it above the fire, on a bookcase, in the window. Don't just save the star for Christmas either! Most people love working with willow once they have had a go. You need a little patience as you do have to soak the willow before starting, but good things come to those who wait! Our willow kits are an ideal way to get a feel for willow and weaving, as they are simple designs aimed at beginners. Once you have tried weaving willow, you will probably develop a new appreciation for the work that goes into making baskets and other products. The willow in our kits is very high quality and can be used to make heirloom items. If kept in dry conditions, it will last a lifetime or more. We use British willow in all our willow kits, our willow is grown in Somerset. We try our best to have as many British products as possible in our kits. The willow is 5-6 feet long and is sent out dry and unsoaked. Soaking the willow is pretty straight forward, our instructions will guide you as to what to do.
