Wild Weaving: Willow Obelisks for Beginners - Sutton Courtenay
About the event
Join a small group on our beautiful nature reserve to learn some basic weaving techniques while making a lovely willow obelisk to take home. Perfect for training plants up or adding a decorative feature. All the materials you will use are grown onsite. This course is suitable for beginners. It combines perfectly with the willow flower weaving course the same afternoon. Both courses would be an excellent basis from which to progress to weaving baskets.
If booking the full day workshop (obelisks + flower weaving) please ensure you select the 'Whole Day' option in order to get the two course discount.
