Sculptor Jess Wilkinson will guide you through the process of making willow creations, both practical and attractive, that you can take home for your garden.
Learn how to select your materials and how to use basic willow weaving techniques to make decorative willow wigwams and small willow cloches. Wigwams can vary in size but during this half-day course you can likely expect to create something 3–4ft tall.
The workshop also includes a two-course meal in the Terrace Restaurant and Bar, along with arrival tea/coffee/biscuits.
