Festive wild crafts

Get ready to deck the halls at this creative festive BFER workshop.

In this workshop, you will explore natural materials and basic weaving techniques to make seasonal decorative crafts.

Begin with a short walk to Thetford riverside, where you will collect local natural materials, which you will then use to create all natural decorations. Have a go at hoop creation, star making, and natural wreath making.

All crafts will be made using willow, alder, dogwood and other natural materials.
