Basket and Willow Weaving

Barbara Clift and Anna Rayment are an amazing Mother and Daughter team.  They will teach you to create unique pieces made from willow but also introducing gorgeous fabrics and ribbons.

Depending on the length of workshop you choose, you can make DSC04761some amazing things.  Fish shaped dishes, butterflies, lanterns, baskets, a garden trellis, abstract art, woodland creatures and much much more.  You can  choose to make one more complicated item or make lots of fun things like stars, hearts, decorations and garlands.

Barbara has made television appearances for shows such as Gardener’s World, created DSC04966willow elements for various shows and festivals and even planted a wacky willow crown for the Queen’s Jubilee visit!

Both Barbara and Anna draw inspiration from the countryside around them, even the materials used, quite literally grow their roots within the West Country.

You will find this workshop gives you so much more than just what you create.  You will feel rested, close to nature and peaceful – whilst at the same time having loads of fun and a lot of laughs – Barbara and Anna will both inspire you and give you a day you will long remember !

You can choose to do a half day workshop when you will get the chance to make smaller fun items such as the hearts, small animals, garden decorations and trays.   Or do a full day, or even a weekend workshop and have time to create something incredible.  We do have a camping area and bell tents for hire should you wish to make this into a glamping weekend with a difference.
