Willow weaving is a mindful, relaxing craft that can be used to not only make practical pieces but to create beautiful sculptures large and small. We offer a selection of morning and afternoon workshops located at various locations throughout the year including:
Our workshop experiences are suited for adults, teenagers, families and groups. We also run courses to suit private groups, corporate team building events, horticultural societies, scouts and guiding groups, private parties, summer schools and children who are homeschooled. The selection of crafts we offer will vary throughout the year depending on the season. We can run morning, afternoon or full-day workshops and regular courses, we also arrange private evening events at a location to suit. For more information and to discuss your requirements contact Lorraine.
Join us at Birtley Woodland Art Space where we will give you the opportunity to make a selection of Willow crafts such as Dragonfly, Flowers and Spheres. It’s great to be able to get out into the woods and enjoy meeting like-minded people. Release your inner creativity whilst being inspired by surrounding flora and fauna.
It’s time to unwind in a mindful and creative botanical workshop with a twist! We combine natural materials with carefully selected plants to produce beautiful planters and art pieces for you to enjoy or gift to others! Working together, Lorraine and Renée will bring you several choices of workshops.
