willow in the gardenIn this workshop suitable for all levels of experience we will be using traditional basketmaking techniques and english willow to produce these attractive and useful additions to any garden. You can expect to be able to make 2 plant supports or a support and a planter in a day.

We will be exclusively using local, organically grown, willow in a selection of beautiful colours - and this year we have a new willow supply. The willow bed is planted in the form of a labyrinth, and there are many varieties, offering us lots of colours, including bright yellow, rich claret, dusty purple, brown and apple green.

Enjoy a restful day of creating in delightful surroundings – Blacksmiths Cottage is situated in 2 acres of lovely garden and woodland - and go home with something new for your garden and a real sense of achievement.

A simple, yummy vegetarian lunch and refreshments are included in the price of £85, but materials are charged for at the end of the workshop depending on how much you actually use - If you are a speedy weaver, you could get through a fair bit of willow on this course, so best to bring an extra £15-£20
