Easter Willow Weaving

Please note that there are no more places available on this workshop. 

Join Leilah Vyner of Dragon Willow to learn the art of willow weaving.

You will be introduced to traditional sculptural techniques using only natural materials, stemming from ancient traditional crafts practices across the world since early civilisations.

Throughout the session you will learn skills that will enable you to experiment with future woven objects, while creating a freestanding, woven Easter chicken for indoor or outdoor use.
