During this workshop, you will make a practical plant support obelisk for use in the garden for beans, clematis, sweet peas, climbing roses etc. using locally grown prepared willow.
There should also be time to weave a dragonfly or giant sunflower, again for use in the garden.
This willow obelisk workshop is suitable for all levels. All tools and equipment will be provided.
Workshop Tutor: Justine Burgess of West Wales Willows.
Justine originally trained as an engineer, and worked in the charity and education sectors, before becoming a partner in West Wales Willows with her husband, Alan. On their smallholding in Carmarthenshire, they grow around 250 varieties of willow and sell it as cuttings and rods during the winter for others to grow, as well as selling their own willow products and sharing her expertise through workshops.
Places are limited to eight participants per event and must be booked in advance.
