Willow Winter Wonders! Give your festive decorations a natural touch this season: Wreaths, stars and hearts, mini willow xmas trees for the table, or gorgeous reindeer – who can resist? Kick start your home made Christmas and a get a great introduction to willow weaving.

Enjoy a productive day of learning about some traditional principles of willow weaving. Whether used to embellish the wintery garden, a wreath for your table and tree, the projects are beautiful with their natural charm. They look great combined with slices of dried citrus fruit, fabric and ribbons in festive colours etc.
