Living Willow Structures

Learn how to design, build and maintain living willow structures for private gardens or public spaces.

These can be large and may need a vehicle big enough to transport the finished item.

For larger structures there is an outdoor area to work sheltered from rain, but it can get windy, hot or cold.

Remember to wear suitable clothes.

Willow is freshly cut during the week before this workshop, so make sure you let Jane know your plans and ideas!

Time: 10am – 4pm (with a break for lunch; bring packed lunch or purchase lunch from the Wigeon café and enjoy fabulous views over the Fens).

Workshops have maximum 8 places.

Tools and willow are provided but you may want to bring your own favourite tools as well.

Booking requirement for all workshops is by full payment at least 7 days in advance of the workshop date.
