We had a lovely 3 days working with the children of Woodlands. We spent 2 days outside in the frost and sunshine creative a living willow tunnel and dome. On day 3 we worked indoors and made a Wishing Tree and giant sunshine! Children from all year groups helped with the weaving and Simone made Star Wands for the youngest.

Living Willow 2015

We have already worked with a few schools this year making living willow structures. The pictures below are from the horticultural college in Mold, North Wales where the students helped to tame a willow project created in 2003. The willows had not been touched for a couple of years and needed a major overhaul! We worked for 2 days in wind, rain and snow!!
