WEAVING WITH WILLOW BARK
Make a beautiful willow bark bowl woven in a hexagonal pattern and stitched with copper wire on this fun and creative workshop. Learn how to harvest willow bark fresh from a willow tree and how to make use of the beautiful textures and interesting natural features for weaving or making simple containers.
The tutor will provide one roll of willow bark per person at an additional cost of £2 per roll, payable at the workshop.
