Flower Trays for Mother’s Day

Join our family willow weaving workshop to create your very own basket tray. Perfect to give as a gift, or keep for yourself!

Make the most of the windblown branches and other natural materials to be found in the Spring season. Discover how to craft your very own ‘storm basket’ style tension tray. Made from willow and gathered sticks, these simple but satisfying items are a great way to learn weaving techniques.
