Willow Wreath


Workshop Overview

Willow is natural, sustainable and widely available. The willow you will be using is actually grown and harvested on our farm. A beautiful, hand crafted Willow Wreath is the perfect eco-friendly statement piece for the home. Gill will show you how to create your wreath form. She will introduce you to the craft of willow work as well as sharing her knowledge about the cultivation and use of willow throughout history. You will leave the workshop with your very own willow wreath, for any season.
