Willow Bird Feeder

Spend the afternoon with Lorraine and learn how to weave a Bird Feeder using Willow harvested locally.

  •  This first choice of Bird Feeder is made in a similar way to a Mini-Obelisk as it is woven upside down using a wood slice for a jig. To finish the feeder you can create a handle and hang from a tree! This feeder is ideal for holding fat balls or pieces of fruit!

Your second choice of Bird Feeder is also woven in a jig and then mounted onto a hazel rod. The bird feeder is self-standing as you can push the supporting rod into the ground.  This closed weave Bird Feeder is ideal for holding seeds.

  • The third style of bird feeder uses a similar technique to weave a simple basket, to finish the upright rods are brought together and a handle included.
