Community Day 10th June – Willow weaving workshop

Learn a new skill and take home an ornament.

We are offering a choice of six mini willow-weaving workshops . Each session will focus on weaving a heart, a fish or a flower – listed in order of complexity. These make lovely garden ornaments and can be taken home with you to decorate further with foliage from your garden, ribbons or even fairy lights for the looser structures.

These workshops are run by Janice Burley, from Down 2 Earth. She is a garden designer and willow weaver. With twenty years of gardening experience and more recently, willow weaving – Janice likes to share her knowledge and skills to encourage other people to get creative with their environment. Children are welcome to join in but must be accompanied by an adult, all of whom need to be booked as individuals.
