Willow Christmas Tree and Decorations

Sarah Gardner

Learn how to make a willow Christmas Tree using basketry techniques. We will use a rope weave to form the shape and size of the structure with willow. We will then make some decorative stars in different styles and sizes to hang on your tree. This is a perfect way to enjoy some festive making in the run up to Christmas and decorate your home with your own creations.

Crafts using your hands can be a therapeutic and an enjoyable experience. Make your very own handmade items to give as gifts or keep for your home.

This course is suitable for all levels including beginners.
