10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Salt Box Nutfield Surrey RH1 4EJ

Join The Salt Box in the woods for an exciting collaboration with Lorraine from Hedges and Hurdles!

We will be using Willow harvested in the spring from the lakesides at the Priory Farm Estates to weave either a Mini-Obelisk or a Bird Feeder to take home for your garden.

Once harvested the Willow is first bundled, dried and stored ready to be rehydrated by soaking in the lake several days before use. The technique used to create both a Mini-Obelisk and Bird Feeder is similar, so you’ll have the choice on the day. For younger children, you could also weave willow fish.

Before the workshop, Christian from The Salt Box will also teach you the art of lighting a fire in the great outdoors, sparking the flames upon which we’ll cook your lunch on! For further information, including our tasty menu, please visit our website: https://wearethesaltbox.co.uk/willowfamily/
