Willow Weaving Workshop

Meet the Masters Workshop – Willow Weaving Workshop – Friday 22nd September 2017

10am – 4pm

Our Meet the Masters Workshops are a unique opportunity for you to spend the whole day learning from masters in their field. Join master willow weaver, Juliette Hamilton here on The Good Life Project farm and learn how to make willow chickens and cockerels! All the fun and character of chickens but without the mess!

  • Learn the ancient skill of weaving using natural, British grown willow
  • Make hens and cockerels to display at home or in your garden
  • You’ll leave the day with your very own creation to proudly display

“I wanted to thank you very much for the really enjoyable day today. I am so proud of the hare, but am, very aware I couldn’t possibly have created it without your expert guidance. You were so patient with us all right through the day . I couldn’t believe it when you said it was 4pm and realised that we had been working away for 6 hours.” Jan
