You will also be given the opportunity to visit our very own Saille garden, to learn the techniques of selecting, grading, and weaving willow, while gaining insight into the natural wonders of this versatile regenerative material.

This is a relaxed workshop where you will work at your own pace. with all materials, tools, and instruction provided, It is designed to be a leisurely three hours, ensuring you have ample time to complete at least one birdfeeder
