Event Details

Join us to discover the secrets of the traditional art of willow weaving and create your own willow structure.

Choose one of our workshops to weave either a beautiful willow hen, plant support, flower or heron.

These lovely forms will be made from willow coppiced on site here at Wakehurst.

Workshop leader Dominic Parrette, a Sussex-based basket maker and willow grower, will guide you through the willow weaving process to help you produce a stunning structure that will look great in your garden. Dominic specialises in traditional frame baskets, organically woven willow forms and beautiful strong plant supports. He sources willow, sweet chestnut and hazel from local coppice woodlands and willow beds, and is committed to sustainable woodland management.
