Wigwam Plant Supports (Large) - One-Day Workshop (Friday)

These large wigwam plant supports, or obelisks, add height and drama to the garden. Plunge into the border for training climbing beans or flowering climbers for instant effect. You will make at least two large wigwams during this workshop, size to suit. NB: The height and diameter of these wigwams requires a large car to transport them home! You may wish to consider the size you can accommodate in your car before you weave! Max size we can make is approx 24" dia and 7'-8' high, but narrower/shorter may be preferable.

The price includes ample willow for your project(s) and use of appropriate basketry tools and equipment, as well as refreshments throughout the workshop.




£60 - 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, or there is a village shop next door where food can be purchased.

A work apron is recommended.
