* THIS EVENT HAS NOW FINISHED *

Sunday 2nd June | 10:00am - 3:00pm

Learn how to weave a Willow (or Hazel) Obelisk & Mini Wattle Hurdle

Learn a heritage skill (or two) in our outdoor workshop nestled within the picturesque location of Sussex Prairie Gardens. We have combined two workshops into one so that you can make and take home both an Obelisk (plant support) and Mini-Wattle Hurdle for your garden!

You will learn a traditional technique of weaving Willow and/or Hazel to make your very own Obelisk to support your climbers such as Sweet Peas or Clematis! Your finished Obelisk can be between 3ft and 7ft in height, we recommend you check how much available space you have in or on your car before deciding! Handled with care your Obelisk should last you for several years.

Perfect the skill of Wattle Hurdle Making using the same techniques applied to making full sized hurdle panels. You will learn how to make a very strong, miniature hurdle, 4ft or 6ft in length and suitable for use for either border or lawn edging.

We have included a one-hour lunch break between the two activities to allow you time to visit the teashop and gardens.

Your tutors will be husband and wife team Lorraine and Paul Matthews of Hedges & Hurdles, Country Skills & Crafts.

Cost: £85.00
