WILLOW PLANT SUPPORT WIGWAMS Saturday 9.30-12.30
COURSE DETAILS AND AIMS:
We will use willow as a material to make a plant support wigwam for
SKILLS OR QUALIFICATIONS NEEDED:
No qualifications are required, however you do need reasonable
dexterity and good strength in your hands in order to be able to
manipulate the thicker willow that is used for making plant support
wigwams. Most of the work needs to be done standing up, so you need
to be comfortable standing for a couple of hours. Please let me know if
you are hard of hearing, so I can ensure you hear everything you need
to fully participate in the course.
MATERIALS/EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR FIRST CLASS:
All materials and equipment will be supplied.
Willow is a natural material and has been stored in a garage and soaked
in an outdoor tank. Please wear older clothes (eg gardening clothes)
to the course or bring an apron. Wash hands before eating after
handling the willow.
