Willow Fedge Course
Carbeth Home Farm, Killearn
16th Feb 2013

Willow weaving is a wonderful craft, and techniques are easy to learn and apply in a creative and practical way to any garden or greenspace.


These workshops will teach you the basics on how to create your own living fence, using a criss-cross method for strength and durability. We will show you where to find willow, how to coppice and tend to create your own willow sculptures/fences/dens.


The tutor, Joyce Macfarlane, is an experienced sculptor and environmental professional who has designed and built many willow structures with schools and local authorities around Scotland.


All of the willow on this course is grown and cut locally.
