Two beautiful willow products
On this day you will have the opportunity to make two beautiful willow products, using willow grown on the croft. Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to learn, practise, and reinforce basic weaving skills. This day is suitable for beginners and for those who have worked with willow before.
The basket has a traditional plank-based design made with native Scottish wood. It is both light but amazingly strong and durable.
The bird house is fun to make and is our very own design, based on the tepee form. Its natural wood base is about eight inches across and the house measures around a fourteen inches high.
The willow and hazel stool – you will be shown how to weave a strong and robust willow seat for your stool. The stool will have been hand made by us, using traditional mortice and tenon joints.
We’re very happy to run this course for two or more people. So just go ahead and book on-line if there are two or more of you. If you’re wanting to come on your own, please email us to see if the course is running. Thank you 🙂
