What we'll do
Using basketry willow in a Forest School setting. Run by two basket makers. Have you got a bundle of willow in your shed and don't know what to do with it? Always fancied using basketry willow with children but don't know where to start? Maybe you've tried some willow weaving but the rods just keep snapping? Don't despair, The Coddiwomplers have all the answers! In this workshop we’ll look at buying, storing and preparing basketry willow and try out a few simple weaving projects you can do in a Forest School setting, such as making fish and bird feeder. You'll learn lors of practical tips, and discover why a coffee tin is an essential tool to success! We will also be open all weekend selling our willow goodies and for drop in willow weaving workshops.
