Willow-weaving workshop – Learn to weave a bird feeder

Learn how to create a bird feeder from a beautiful spiral weave, to hold peanuts or a fat ball. A bird feeder is an excellent way to encourage more birds into your garden.

Birds are an excellent (and natural) way to reduce flower or veg-munching insects. Did you know that a single bird can eat more than 100 times it’s own body weight in insects in a year?*.

You’ll also have the opportunity to make a dragonfly or butterfly decoration.

We have two sessions available to book, starting at 10:30am and 2pm on Friday, 14th June. The workshop will last 2.5 hours. You’ll take your bird feeder home with you and the workshop fee includes materials and use of formers for anyone who needs an easier way of starting.

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.
