Weaving with Willow Bark


Make a beautiful willow bark bird 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.


Students do not need to bring anything to this workshop. The Tutor will supply one roll of willow bark at an additional cost of £2.00 per person to be paid at the workshop.
