Willow obelisks

Early booking is recommended for this 1/2 day workshop at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens where you will learn to make a willow obelisk. Led by Leilah Vyner from Dragon Willow near Tadcaster this is an ideal opportunity for people to learn the craft of willow weaving.

You will be guided in making a 6ft obelisk using willow that will support your climbing plants this summer – perfect for sweet peas, beans, nasturtiums or other plants that will benefit from support. You will learn some basic weaving techniques to make a natural and attractive addition to your flower and vegetable beds, rockeries and borders.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and all materials and tools are included in the price.
