Guests learn the artisan craft of willow weaving and make a natural bird feeder.
Basket weaving has long been regarded as a wonderfully mindful and relaxing pastime. In this activity we’ll show guests traditional basketry techniques and how to make a hanging energy ball holder for our feathered friends!
We’ll post out kits in advance of the activity, containing natural willow, birdfeed balls and full instructions. Hosted by our expert, guests will be guided through each step, from making their own template and base, learning about the different types of willow, plus basket weaving techniques.
Shop bought birdfeed balls are perfect but we will also include recipes on how to make homemade birdfeed balls for a future project!
At the end of the activity, guests will have a beautiful, natural, handmade bird feeder that they can place in their garden or outdoor surroundings, for their own “Springwatch” or to give away as a gift.
We’ll also include instructions for a bonus project, that guests can use any left over willow on, or can make in the future.
What is included: Expert host, green screen virtual background, posted kit containing: willow, instructions for 2 projects and homemade birdfeed ball recipes.
