Workshops are all suitable for beginners as well as those with some experience. Using willow and other natural fibres learn to make simple structures. Learn a variety of “off loom” techniques for sculpture and hangings for interior and exterior pieces, including living willow and plant supports.

Students will be able to achieve a selection of sample pieces showing a variety of techniques and some experimental pieces, combining weaving, wrapping and braiding.

Remember to wear suitable clothes, for larger structures there is an outdoor area to work in sheltered from rain and sun, but it can get very windy, hot or cold!
