Christmas Willow Masterclass
9th December 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£25.00 - £50.00
Join basket weaver Clare Revera, to make a willow Christmas wreath, tree and a random weave star. In this one-day masterclass you will use fresh and dried willow and learn a variety of traditional weaving techniques.
Willow is a natural, flexible and inexpensive material that is one of the oldest and most enduring of crafts. From simple abstract shapes up to large animal figures, willow creations can be infinitely versatile and surprising durable. What can be more satisfying than making your own willow Christmas Wreath adorning your front door?
Willow can also be worked with as a living material, into fences, windbreaks, archways, airy green domes, and tunnels, which continue to grow and provide a welcome bit of shade in summer months.
All materials and tools will be supplied. Beginner’s welcome. No previous experience of weaving required. Tea & coffee is provided but you’ll need to bring a packed lunch or try out the local pub.
