What we'll do
Using foraged willow and other materials in a Forest School setting. Run by two experienced basket makers. Have you got willow growing on your site, but don’t know what to do with it? Have you tried collecting willow only to find it snaps when you use it? Would you like to know how to get started with weaving with children? Relax. The Coddiwomplers have the answers to these questions and many more? In this workshop we’ll look at the differences between basketry willow and willow that you might have growing on your site and locally. We’ll use foraged willow and other materials to make tension trays which is a great project for a Forest School setting. We'll also show you how to make a hoop that doesn't ping apart (harder than you think!). The Coddiwomplers will also be open all weekend selling their willow goodies and offering drop in workshops.
