We have a variety of workshops running this Spring, below is just a selection for April that you may be interested in. Come alone or bring a friend, our outdoor workshops are enjoyable, mindful and relaxing!
Teaming up once again with Ruth Wheeler we will bring you our Whittle & Weave workshop to our shared studio, Birtley Woodland Art Space. This is a chance for individuals and family groups to combine Willow Craft and Pyrography into one morning, afternoon or full-day workshop. Our published Whittle & Weave seasonal workshop dates are both during term time and also in the holidays so we expect this will attract different audiences depending on the selected date.
Join me, Renee (aka The Girl Who Gardens) and Debbie in our new dried flower wreath workshops. We use a selection of Willows to weave the initial wreath base and you will learn various techniques to dress your wreath with dried grasses, seed heads and beautiful dried flowers and foliage sourced from local sustainable suppliers.
Our popular Willow Craft, Willow In The Wood and Hen In The Woods workshops return, offering a selection of attractive Willow art pieces for you to create and display around your home and garden or make as a gift for a friend. The Willow crafts include Dragonfly, Flowers, Butterflies, Platters, Hearts, Bird Feeders, Spheres and new this year, Bird Houses!
Finally, we will also introduce our new Willow Sculpture workshops, commencing with our Willow Hen/Chicken, a relaxing full-day weaving workshop working from drawings, photos or a design of your choice. This workshop also includes a delicious lunch!
Sharpening your tools is an important task to undertake, join Paul and learn the correct techniques to apply to a variety of tools! This is a 3-hour course where you can bring your Garden Tools, Coppicing and Green Woodworking tools with you to sharpen.
We look forward to welcoming you and your friends and family to one of our Spring workshops! We also welcome private groups, see here for more information: PRIVATE GROUPS
