Get crafty at willow weaving workshops
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.
