*************************************************************************

Dreaming of a more sustainable Christmas? Then come and join Willow Coppice for a willow weaving workshop, where your will make your own creative and sustainable Christmas decorations in locally grown willow and wood, so you can have fun weaving, and take home some eco-friendly and beautiful decorations for your festive season!

We'll also have a small pop-up shop with sustainable Xmas gifts and local, ethical and seasonal products.

Trees and Stars:
The day will be in two parts, you can come to the morning session, the afternoon session, or even better, both.
In the morning it's all about Trees: we will make a tree centre piece in willow and hazel, and lots of tree hanging Christmas decorations. In the afternoon the theme is Stars: we will make Swedish Christmas Stars, Christmas Tree stars, and multiple hanging tree decoration stars.

When and where:

Eynsham Sprots Pavillion
Sunday 28th November
10am - 12.30pm and 1.30pm - 4pm
You can book the morning session, the afternoon session, or both.

What's included:
No previous experience is necessary, we'll guide you every step of the way, but if you have any basket making tools please bring them along, we will be using:
Secateurs
Scissors
Slyping knife
Measuring tape
Bodkin
Hand drills

There will be plenty of tools for you to borrow if you don't have any of these.
Zero waste, organic materials will be provided by us, but please feel free to bring along your own string or ribbon if you are planning on a particular colour scheme for your Xmas decorations. Everything we make will be fully compostable, or can be treasured for years to come.
If you'd like to bring our own foraged hedgerow or home-grown material to make with then please do, it would be brilliant! We recommend that willow is cut and air dries for at least a fortnight before use.
