This is the workshop you need to do if you have not tried willow weaving before. It is a very popular workshop, we have been running for many years and we get lots of positive feed back.

The workshop naturally begins with coffee and cake. Gina then introduces the class to the possibilities of willow weaving and where to obtain your materials should you wish to develop your weaving skills further at home after the workshop.
