FAQ

What’s included in the price?

All tools and materials are included along with refreshments and individually wrapped cakes etc and snacks, please provide your own lunch if you are attending a full-day workshop.

We have exclusive access to kitchen facilities and self-contained toilets  I will be following all current safety guidelines with a maximum of 5 spaces available. I will be providing individually wrapped refreshments and disposable plates, cups, and cutlery should you wish to use it. We have the option to work outside or inside and there is plenty of room to spread out.  Cleaning wipes etc will be available.

I’m a total beginner/ have attended other workshops will it be ok for me?

It takes many years to learn a new craft as with any other skill some people jump in feet first and connect straight away whilst otherwise find it takes more time its like anything you don’t know until you try.

The workshops are designed as an introduction to working with the materials and for those if you have some experience the opportunity to develop more skills. so please note that the detail that you will achieve will vary from person to person. If you are booking a workshop for someone else please ensure that they have read this.

What is the minimum notice that you need to book a place

Spaces usually book up quickly if there are any still available the minimum notice that I require is as follows

  • One week to create an item using the traditional brown willow and
  • 3 days notice  if you are happy to use buff willow (this is not suitable for staying outside in cold/wet weather.) 
  • Workshops will be canceled and rearranged if there are not enough attendees to go ahead.

Please note that working with willow and can be tiring on the hands and may be difficult for you to do if you have conditions such as arthritis or find it hard to grip and pull I would suggest that you contact me to discuss what workshops might be suitable for you to attend and if there are any alternative options.

Please wear clothing that you like working in. You are welcome to bring your own secateurs and gloves if you wish to.

Please read my cancelation policy before you book a place.
