Workshop Info

Date: Thursday, October 17, 2019
Time:1:00 - 4:00
Instructor:Bonnie Gale
Willow Wreath Making

Most wreaths start with a provided core made of straw or other materials but not in this workshop where students will make their own woven willow core with large fresh willow rods.A started core will be provided to each student. Once this core is finished, then weaving will progress alternatively clockwise and anticlockwise, so creating natural pockets in the weaving for embellishments. No glue is therefore necessary for attaching embellishments. Hence, this is a fully recyclable wreath and can be used year round for any occasion. A variety of embellishments in the Fall flavor will be available for class participants.

This is a full size wreath and can be made in any shape: round, oval of square.

PrerequisitesAll levels welcome - Good manual dexterity and an interest in willow basketry.

Note: This workshop will be held in a heated tent.  Your hands may be in and out of water.
