Willow Tension Trays – Day One of the Willow Weekend

July 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Day One: Willow Tension Trays.

Willow is highly valued as a basket weaving material and this project offers a perfect introduction to weaving with willow rods. We will begin with a discussion about how to grow, harvest and prepare willow for weaving. These lovely trays are certain to become a favourite center piece for serving food or displaying your fresh produce. They are also useful for drying herbs. If time permits, we will make a smaller round version.
