Creating Living Willow Structures – Saturday March 12th – 10am – 4:30pm

In this course, participants will be introduced to the wonderful plant that is willow! You will learn how to create your own living willow structures for use in your own garden, community space or school. You will learn how to erect a simple living fence or fedge, along with the principles for other structures as well as how to maintain and regenerate old structures in the long term such as fedges and domes. This one-day course is aimed at beginners but will be accessible to those with some experience too. Please come prepared to be outside for the day, in warm clothes, work boots and work gloves. Bring secateurs if you have them.
