These workshops are being held at an 8 acre eco-friendly, off-grid small holding and nature reserve, surrounded by beautiful countryside near the historic town of Sherborne in Dorset. If you would like more details of the above workshops or to hear of one-off events, do let me know by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org ,or telephone 07765 654771. I tend not to advertise my courses, instead I have an exclusive list of interested parties. Please note; I will not share your contact details with any other organisations.

These willow weaving courses and rural craft workshops concentrate on using natural materials which are abundant all around us and do not rely on the use of fossil fuels. These courses are especially for people who love to submerge themselves in our natural world. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to see a bit more of my long standing experience as a tutor.
Accommodation: There is a good selection of 'B&B's', hotels and caravan sites in the Sherborne area and 'wild camping' is available close by - more details on request.
Booking and Cancellation policy: Full payment will be required in advance of the day in order to secure your booking. Please note that should a booking have to be cancelled a full refund will only be offered if more than three weeks notice is given. If the organiser has to cancel a full refund will be offered. NB - placement on the courses does not infer the right to intellectual property.
If you require any further information please don't hesitate to get in touch, by telephone or e-mail.
All courses listed include refreshments, materials and use of tools. Please bring your own pic-nic lunch and ensure that you wear your work clothes.
