This is a great workshop to catch up with family and friends too and rest assured we run a COVID 19 secure business (see further information below).
In this workshop, you will have the choice of learning to weave either a Willow Angel sculpture in the design of your choosing or a Willow Heart perfect decorations to hang in your home or outside all year round or make as a gift for a loved one! We have also recently added the choice of making two Swedish Stars.
The Angel here has been made using Buff Willow which has had the bark removed before drying, the Willow is then soaked for around 1.5 hrs prior to use and left for 24hrs to mellow. The Heart can be made from either buff or brown willow. Brown willow still has its bark and has been re-hydrated before use for 24hrs hours for every foot in length!
Finally, for those attending our event at Lloyd Hall, you can choose this third option you will learn to weave two natural and traditional Swedish Stars using Willow in contrasting colours to be combined together to make an attractive Christmas decoration.
It’s very relaxing and mindful working with Willow, it can also be a very addictive craft but luckily we offer Willow Craft workshops throughout the year and not just for Christmas!
If you finish making your Willow Angel or Heart early you can also make a small Star or mini Christmas Tree!
Please bring your own pair of sharp secateurs, gloves, water bottle and your own mug/cup if you would like a hot drink.
