Willow Craft Workshop
Saturday 14th August 2021
Morning workshop: 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Afternoon workshop: 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m
Join Lorraine for an afternoon in our outdoor Willow Craft Workshop and make a selection of crafts to take away!
There is something about working with Willow that is relaxing and mindful, you have to focus on the task at hand, the only danger in learning the skill of weaving is you could get hooked!
In this 2.5 hr workshop held on the green at the back of Flittons Nursery, you will have the choice of making two of the following crafts: Willow Platter (tension tray); Bird Feeder, Dream Catcher or Mini Obelisk!
The workshop is suitable for Adults and children aged 8yrs and above. You will be able to work independently or in pairs. A child's ticket can only be purchased if accompanied by a paying adult.
