Our 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.
