Christmas Willow Workshops

We held our first Christmas workshop for 2019 last Sunday in the Lambing Barn with its scenic views reaching out across Priory Farm, Sout Nutfield and beyond. I was amazed by the abilities of our trainees, their finished crafts looked beautiful. I hope they enjoyed the event as much as I did, it certainly reminded me why I changed my career! It was important to me to find something that would allow me to obtain a good work-life balance, to enjoy spending time with others and passing on my skills and to be mindful and relaxed in my work and embrace each day and new experience as it comes!

I was joined by Renée Canter (aka The Girl Who Gardens) who delivered a Christmas Gift Terrarium workshop. This craft took me back to my youth when I fondly remember making miniature gardens in glass bottles, imagining that fairies and gnomes lived in amongst the plants. I was addicted to the Enid Blyton stories as a young child, even today I can’t wait to read aloud The Faraway Tree to my Grandchildren before they go to bed joining them on an exciting new journey in some new strange land as they drift off to sleep.

We have further Christmas Workshops taking place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December at Lloyd Hall, Outwood. This is a larger venue, the barn has lovely high ceilings and plenty of room to wield our Hazel and Willow rods without taking someone’s eye out!

Included in all our Christmas workshops

All-natural materials and Christmas ribbons, candles and other accessories required to make your craft of choice plus:

  • Mince Pie and Mulled Wine!
  • Tea and Coffee and soft drinks
  • Take home your completed craft
