Get crafty at wil­low weav­ing work­shops

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

What bet­ter way to be­gin a new year than with learn­ing a new craft or by per­fect­ing one? All that will be pos­si­ble at the Na­tional Trust’s Peck­over House Wil­low Weav­ing Work­shops. Ex­pert wil­low weaver Bob Lever will be giv­ing step by step in­struc­tions at the two events, at which all ma­te­ri­als will be supplied. The first work­shop on Jan­uary 11 will con­cen­trate on mak­ing plant sup­ports and wel­comes begin­ners as well as weavers with some ex­pe­ri­ence. The work­shop on the fol­low­ing day will be cen­tred on mak­ing bird sculp­tures, when some ex­pe­ri­ence of wil­low weav­ing would be help­ful. At both events, you can take home your cre­ations. The plant sup­port work­shop on Wed­nes­day runs from 10am to 3.30pm and the bird sculp­ture event from 10am to 4pm. For de­tails and to book tick­ets at £55, which in­clude all ma­te­ri­als, call Peck­over House on 01945 583463.
