Join us this autumn and make a stags head completely out of willow, with no metal frame. An ideal decoration for all year around and a fun way to learn a new traditional skill. Suitable for beginners. Willow weaver Leilah Vyner will teach you the art of creating sculpture from willow rods and the random weave we use to make large and small sculptures.

Useful Information

All the tools are provided for the day, you can bring an apron if you want to protect your clothing.
