Additional information

The workshops are designed to meet all levels of experience and the level of detail that you will achieve will depend on your previous experience. If you need advice please contact me.

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.)

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. If your not sure or have any concern please contact me in advance to discuss as I may be able to assist you with using alternative materials.

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