Willow Workshop at Blacksmiths Cottage - Plant Supports - 21/5/2024

SalixArts Willow Workshop with Debbie Hall at Blacksmith Cottage  
Plant Supports  
Tuesday 21st May, 10am-5pm, £95

2024 plant supportsIn this workshop suitable for all levels of experience we will be using traditional basketmaking techniques and english willow to produce these attractive and useful additions to any garden.

We start the day by trying out the techniques on a small scale (with a lantern / fatball feeder) then move onto plant supports. Everyone will make one plant support and most people will manage two in a day. If you have already made a lantern or have other basketry experience we may move straight to the plant supports.

On this course, usually everyone starts with a simple spiral plant support, but we often end up getting pretty creative!

We will be exclusively using local, organically grown willow in a selection of colours. 

Enjoy a restful day of creating in delightful surroundings – Blacksmiths Cottage is situated in 2 acres of lovely garden and woodland - and go home with something new for your garden and a real sense of achievement.

A simple, yummy vegetarian lunch and refreshments are included in the price of £95, but materials are charged for at the end of the workshop depending on how much you actually use. Depending on size willow for a plant support could be £15. If you are a speedy weaver, you could get through a fair bit of willow on this course, so please bring appropriate amounts of cash with you for this on the day.
