Willow Sundays at Primary Gardens
Come and join us at Primary Gardens. NG7s very own urban Garden Centre. Located in the grounds of ‘We Are Primary’ , on the first Sunday of the month we will be making different willow creations designed to be beautiful and useful in the home and Garden.
10am -1pm – £20 — includes materials, tools and hands on tuition and refreshments also 10% off plants at Primary Gardens
Following the past success of our workshops we will have a rolling programme from September 2017
A. Obelisk/Plant supports
Using weaving techniques used in basketry you will make a five foot obelisk; ideal for sweet peas and other light climbers. The same techniques can be employed to make larger supports for crop such as beans.
B. Hurdles—using willow and other garden trimmings learn how to make useful hurdles or fences for your garden/allotment
C. Using similar techniques to the obelisk workshop make fat ball feeders in willow
D. Using free weave techniques make sculptures for your garden (or home) Spheres and/or Chickens
E. Home decorations
All of the above will give you familiarity with the material and will help if you want to attend a basket making course.
