Willow garden structures workshop

Did you know that Romans introduced 'stake and strand' basket weaving? While continuing as a living tradition, basket weaving has undergone a revival of interest among craftspeople, leading to new forms of expression.

  • Booking essential

Richard Kerwood of Windrush Willow will lead a one-day workshop making willow garden supports. In the morning you can make a tall wigwam with a spiral twist for climbers. In the afternoon you can choose to repeat the wigwam plant support or make a cylindrical grow-through structure using similar techniques.

£55 per person. All materials, tools and a light lunch are included in the price.

Booking is essential so please book online or call 0344 2491895.
