Willow Weaving ~ Garden Trug – FULLY BOOKED

Willow Weaving ~ Garden Trug - FULLY BOOKED

During this willow weaving workshop, you will make a beautiful garden trug for collecting your veggie harvest or storing your tools perhaps.

A slightly different twist on the garden trug that we usually do.  You will learn how to make the handle from a wreath which is then attached to the rim using a “Gods Eye” weave.  You will insert several ribs and also learn how to weave the willow to form the body of the basket. You will learn traditional weaving techniques to create a beautiful and strong basket.

This basket is also ideal for use as an egg basket.

A selection of willow colours will be available.  This 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 six participants and must be booked in advance.
