Make your own natural Christmas decorations
Come and learn about how to weave a willow wreath using materials from the garden to make natural decorations and take a wreath home with you in time for Christmas! You will be shown how to weave your own willow wreath that you can then decorate with natural materials from the gardens. We will also look at making table decorations, wall hangings and other ideas for natural decorations. There will also be discussion around the benefits of home-grown, compostable decorations versus less sustainable options.
The course will be taught by Judith who is a former gardener at Ryton Organic Gardens who helped to build and maintain some of the willow hedges on site. She believes that winter wouldn't be winter without cutting willow for use in a wide variety of crafts. This course is aimed at beginners and therefore no previous experience needed as you will be taught from scratch on the day.
This course is subject to change.
