Willow Craft For The Birds - 4th June

willow craft bird feeder

Join Lorraine for either a half-day or full-day workshop learning to make Hanging Bird Feeders and/or Birdhouse to take home and hang in your garden or to gift to a loved one.

You will learn all about Willow how it's grown, and how to use it to create beautiful crafts for your home and garden.

In this workshop, you will learn the weaving techniques used to create a hanging bird feeder and birdhouse. We will create both the feeder and birdhouse using a tabletop jig and brown Willow that has been soaked in preparation to ensure it is flexible for weaving. This is a very rewarding workshop.

Using natural materials we ensure these crafts do not look out of place in your garden, and more importantly, they will attract the birds.

• Hanging Bird Feeder (morning)
• Hanging Birdhouse (afternoon)

All materials to complete your willow-weaving will be included and each session also includes a glass of Albury Estate sparkling wine. A delicious English cheese and charcuterie lunch is available as an optional extra.
"I had a lovely afternoon of live willow weaving. It was very relaxing and enjoyable and I came home with two willow sculptures I’m rather proud of and can hopefully enjoy for years to come – all with a glass of delicious Albury English sparkling wine thrown in to boot! Thank you Lorraine for a great session!Jackie, 2023
