Explore the ancient craft of willow basket weaving in this 3 hour hands-on workshop! Using natural locally grown willow from the grounds of Quince Honey Farm, you will learn how to create a traditional stake and strand round basket and the weaving techniques to craft the base, side weave, and borders. There is the option during the workshop to turn your willow basket into a willow hanging basket, too! Why not bring your willow hanging basket along with you to use in our 'Planting for Pollinators' workshop on 14th May? Customers who book on both workshops will receive a 10% discount on the second one booked! For more details about the 'Planting for Pollinators' workshop please click here.

Come along and immerse yourself into the wonderful world of willow weaving and finish with a beautiful and practical basket, or hanging basket, to take home with you. You can book online (booking fee applies), or book by telephone 017469 572 401, or in person in our shop. Places are limited so advance booking is essential.
