About the Event
A wreath is not just for Christmas…. We’ve decided to switch things up when it comes to Christmas wreaths this year and are working with willow to make your wreath more sustainable, natural and lasting so you can reuse it year after year.
Julie - is your willow weaving expert will lead you through various techniques of how to create a one of kind, natural wreath. She’ll also share more about the various varieties of willow, and how to harvest and prepare willow for weaving on your own, before you’ll get stuck into making your own wreathe.
