What happens in this class?

In this willow weaving workshop, we will look at willow in its dry and wet states and begin to handle and learn techniques to manipulate it. once we have a good understanding, we will then immerse ourselves into the wonderful rhythm of weaving.

You can work on your own on a small piece, or in a friend or family group to create more ambitious scaled work. Remember it has to fit in your vehicle at the end of the session!

FANTASTIC, I really enjoyed it. Stephen was great, full of fun knowledge and all round good egg. It was easy to find and loads of parking, We did take our own food but we got a very nice hot meal next door, but I don’t know if this is always open? There is a kettle so if you what to take your own milk and coffee/tea it’s not a problem, I can home with a wonderful creature a cross between a sheep 🐑 and a deer 🦌. But I love him. I would go age because I would like more creatures to go with the one I have. Thank you Stephen, hope to see you again. Kay x

I really enjoyed my first attempt at Willow weaving and I learned a lot. The tutor was skilled and supportive and provided a chilled, mindful and fun atmosphere which encouraged me, an anxious novice, to give it a go.

This was such an amazing workshop! The day was lovely, such a nice setting and the teacher is really good. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the day but I also came home with a beautiful sculpture for the garden! Highly recommended

dTeacher was very informative and we learned a lot. The venue was great and we acheived a lot in 2.5 hours. Highly reccommended!

As a total novice, I did not know what to expect but was curious about willow weaving. Stephen was very personable and we had good chats while we were working. He showed me a range of willow rods and how they could be used and by the end of the afternoon we had produced a marvellous willow sculpture. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try out sculptural willow weaving. The venue is set amidst an industrial area right on the Thames, so is very atmospheric.
