The Coddiwomplers are back! Come along to Blackthorpe Barn this Spring to learn some basic willow weaving skills and techniques to create a range of gift items.

If you’d like to book more than one workshop, you’ll be able to make something different each time.

No previous experience is needed, but some manual dexterity and hand strength are required.

Bring a packed lunch.

Tools, materials, teas, coffees, and biscuits will be provided.

Age of attendees: 16+

Venue: Meadow Barn, a short walk from Blackthorpe Barn’s car park

Level: This course is designed for all levels of expertise, with beginners especially welcome

Materials: Materials are included.
