Anyone interested in having a go with weaving with willow.
This all-day course held at West Town Farm in rural Ide outside Exeter offers students time to relax and be creative in a lovely outdoor environment. You will get an opportunity to develop satisfying and practical skills involving weaving with willow. Using the willow grown in the OrganicARTS fibre garden we will start in the morning with a simple tension platter. In the afternoon there will either be another simple willow project to make, or for those attending both sessions and wishing to undertake something more complex there will be the opportunity to start a basket which can be finished in the second session. Others attending the second session will make a tension platter and another different project.
Lunch is not provided so students are asked to bring a packed lunch. There is a small shop at the farm where you can purchase drinks and healthy snacks.
