Enjoy a day outdoors learning a new skill by joining us here at The Donkey Sanctuary (Sidmouth) as we build living willow tunnels and a dome, using willow grown on our farms.
The workshop will be led by local professional willow weaver, Stephen Froom, who will provide tuition and guidance throughout the day. If you would like to check out some of Stephen’s wonderful willow work, please visit his website (link below).
This is a hands-on workshop and by the end of the day you will be ready to tackle your own project at home. You can purchase a kit on the day which includes everything you need to make your own living willow structure (willow, mulch, ties and instructions) from Stephen Froom for £40 (cash or cheque please).
- You will discover how to use living willow to create structures such as arches, tunnels and domes.
