Willow weaving

This workshop is a perfect present for a crafty Mum (Mothering Sunday is 26 March) - more creative than a bunch of flowers and healthier than chocolate!!

• Weaving and bending techniques to make two small items as an introduction
• Brief discussion of weaving options and structure design

What do I need to bring?

• A pair of secateurs
• Work gloves if preferred
• A suitable vehicle to transport your masterpiece home
