Willow Weaving Workshop – Learn to weave a bird feeder

Are you a nature and a bird lover who’d like to try your hand at willow weaving?

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

This workshop will help you do just that. Over the course of 2.5 hours, learn how to weave a bird feeder from willow.

Using a former and a pairing weave, you’ll gradually create a fat ball feeder. And if there’s time, find out how to make a spiral weave feeder – which is ideal for holding peanuts.

We have two sessions, starting at 10:30am and 2pm on Friday, 14th July. You’ll take your bird feeder home with you.

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. Spaces are limited so book your place now.
