This workshop will be delivered by Wendy Bristow who set up her business 'Twigs & Sprigs' in April 2017. With 18 years of teaching experience, Wendy's willow workshops are fun, addictive and also therapeutic.

All abilities are welcome and no previous weaving experience is necessary.

Workshops at Rural Arts give you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment and are all suitable for beginners. Our tutors are friendly, passionate and have lots of experience and knowledge to share with you. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in the Rural Arts Café before heading through to the workshop to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit the café page to view our menu.

Please bring an apron.
