Stars, garlands, reindeer and more on this fun crafty Christmas workshop.
Put away the tinsel and the fake snowflakes, and come and spend an enjoyable morning creating your own Christmas decorations for your home. We will start with a wreath for the front door and then you can choose what to make next – hearts, stars, angels, wands, trees or even a mince pie platter!
This is a fun, hands-on course which showcases the joys of working with willow and teaches simple willow weaving techniques. All materials are included.
About the Leader:
Norah Kennedy's love of natural materials started when she worked as a herdswoman and was enhanced when she retrained as a willow basket maker in the 1980s. Her interest lies in making baskets that are ‘right in themselves and good for use’ and reviving at least a portion of the many traditional uses for willow that have been superseded, but not surpassed, by synthetic materials. She has been teaching at Kingcombe for eighteen years.
Norah will be teaching a range of willow courses at Kingcombe in 2016 including: Willow Workshop Weekend (Fri 22 – Sun 24 Apr); Willow Structures for the Garden (Mon 25 Apr) and Willow Workshop (Mon 14 – Thur 17 Nov)

The course will start at 09.30am and finish at 12.30pm.
