Sculptor Jess Wilkinson will guide you through the process of designing and making a small collection of unique willow stars, reindeer and other motifs.
You’ll learn about the tools and materials needed for weaving a willow decoration, along with the techniques needed to weave a festive star and a mini reindeer in willow. After the workshop, you’ll have made your own collection of gorgeous willow Christmas decorations to take home.
The workshop also includes a two-course meal in the Terrace Restaurant and Bar, along with arrival tea/coffee/biscuits.
