You can expect to be able to make 2 plant supports or a support and a planter in a day. On this course, usually everyone starts with a simple spiral plant support, but we often end up getting pretty creative!

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. A medium plant support could be £8-£12. If you are a speedy weaver, you could get through a fair bit of willow on this course, so best to bring an extra £20-£30
