Festive Willow Weaving

Friday, December 5th 2014

Twenty four visitors joined us this morning for our annual Festive Willow Weaving Course. Over 1,000 whips of willow had been cut in preparation along with a variety of festive greenery for everyone to use to create their wreaths.

Guidance was given on how to create the basic structure of the wreath using cut willow before a brilliant range of decorative designs emerged, from minimalist using just ribbon through to a traditional mix of Spruce, Holly and Ivy.

Thank you to everyone who helped out and we hope that those who attended enjoyed themselves.
