You will make a large wigwam support suitable for training beans and flowering climbers, as well as a smaller one that can fit into plant pot. You will complete at least one of each size during the day, possibly more if you are a quick worker! WARNING make sure you have room in your car to transport your finished wigwams! - the tallest size could be 8'. NB: This workshop is also available at Winchester Adult Education, Weeke, on Saturday 21 April - see “Also Teaching at …”.
£55 - includes all materials, use of tools, and refreshments
This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners, but please bear in mind that a certain amount of manual strength and dexterity is required when working with willow. The projects covered on my workshops have been selected for their relative simplicity and suitability for beginners. Throughout the workshop students may need to use specialist basketry tools (provided), many of which are either sharp or pointed, so a sensible approach to personal safety is essential!
Class size is limited to 6 participants so that I can provide maximum individual attention.
Refreshments are provided – please bring a packed lunch.
A work apron is recommended.
