Willow Weaving Workshop

21 February 2019 (10am-4pm)

@ Growing Matters (Gilmerton House Garden) – 

We are excited to announce our next Willow Workshop to take place on 21 February 2019. This will be an all-day workshop at Gilmerton House, Athelstaneford, from 10am to 4pm with a soup and sandwich lunch provided. Our tutor will be Anna Liebmann, who ran the very enjoyable workshop last year. This time we will be learning how to make plant supports in the morning and hurdles in the afternoon. Learning the processes will further our aim of becoming more self-sufficient in horticultural craft skills. We will be using a lot of willow that we have grown from cuttings in our garden. We will supply materials and some basic equipment but a list of useful items that you could bring will be circulated in advance of the day.

Our charity is subsidising the cost of this Workshop, so the total cost of the day will be £15 for active volunteers involved with the charity, and £40 for guests; a very reasonable price, I am sure you will agree. Please sign up as soon as you can by contacting Di Simcock on 01620 880244
