Try your hand at making a simple willow item

Weaving willow – Cholstrey Threshing Barn & Medieval Gardens – The Town House

Try your hand at making a simple willow item, following in the footsteps of millennia of country folk who made use of the natural resources that surrounded them. Materials from the woods were harvested, stored and used throughout the year for a very wide range of everyday articles.

Many houses will have had gardens to supply herbs and vegetables for the family. Learn about the planning, planting and building of medieval gardens as we develop our very own woven, hazel fenced garden.

Adult – £8.80*

Senior – £7.70*

Student – £4.50
