Willow in the Garden

Join Richard Kerwood of Windrush Willows for an enjoyable day making willow decorations for your garden, including sunflowers, bird feeders, dragonflies, hearts and fish.

The course assumes the student is a beginner and starts with a Health and Safety briefing and an explanation of the tools and how to use them. We generally start with a demonstration of how to make the Bird feeder, followed by the dragonfly. Students then decide which other items they would like to make, and generally go home with 3 or more items, plus the knowledge and inspiration to try many more!

This course is suitable for anybody, including children aged 7 and up.

Please wear warm clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. You might want to bring an apron and a notebook. All other tools and willow will be provided.
