During this hot weather period, our trees have been under stress. We ask you not to sit under our trees or enter roped off areas due to the risk of sudden limb drop. Areas including the Lower Woodland Walk, Learning Centre wildlife and picnic areas, and Copper Shelter are closed at this time.

    Willow weaving

Zarzo basketry is a recently developed style from Denmark, used to weave practical and attractive oval and rectangular baskets. You will learn basketry techniques throughout the day as you weave your own Zarzo using willow of assorted colours.

Sarah has an infectious enthusiasm for her craft and will inspire you with tales about our rich willow basket-making heritage. She is passionate about her willow work and has been running her own business in willow sculpting and basketwork since 2006.

All materials provided. Lunch and refreshments included.
