Come and enjoy learning a few basic willow-weaving skills, in a relaxing environment. You will produce a large willow obelisk and begin to understand how to work with willow. These structures look great in the garden, on the allotment or even in a pot on the patio. They could offer support to your colourful climbers and runner beans; I’ve even used mine in the house as a centrepiece for hanging photos and birthday cards. All materials and tools are provided.
