Creative Workshops and Courses, Harwich, Essex

Jo Hammond – Willow Weaving, Festive Reindeer

£79.00 | 23rd November - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM | Spaces available: 10

All Materials Included

Join willow weaving expert Jo Hammond and create this charming reindeer using natural English willow. Your finished sculpture will be complete with branching antlers and stand around 60cm tall.

This seasonal sculpture is simple to make with Jo’s step-by-step guidance, whether you’re a complete beginner or experienced in willow work. You’ll learn how to make a simple framework with dry materials, which is then clothed with flowing supple willow using the freeweave technique. The antlers, made from hedgerow branches, give a dramatic final fourish.

Beginners are very welcome on this workshop, however willow weaving requires reasonable hand strength.

Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
