Willow Weaving Workshop

Today I attended a willow weaving workshop at The Maltings, Farnham. I have never done anything like this before but I decided to bite the bullet and just go for it.

It turns out that this was absolutely the right thing to do! I loved it!

I loved the fact that we were working with such a natural material, that happened to smell amazing and with few other tools we were able to make some very simple and some more complicated shapes and structures.

This workshop was Christmas themed and so we made stars, christmas trees and reindeer, but I feel that through a relatively short workshop I have learnt a lot of new skills that I would feel confident and comfortable with applying to other pieces of my work.
