Intro to Willow Weaving with Mayo Macra

Introduction to Willow-Weaving workshops!  Over the course of four sessions, participants will delve into the rich history and cultural significance of this traditional craft while honing their skills under the expert guidance of Tom, our experienced facilitator.

Each 3-hour workshop will be a hands-on exploration of the intricate techniques involved in willow-weaving.  From basic fundamentals to advanced patterns, participants will learn the art of shaping and sculpting willow into beautiful creations, all while soaking in the serene surroundings of our scenic location.

But it's not just about the craft – it's about connection and community.  As participants weave together, they'll forge bonds and build friendships in a supportive and encouraging environment.  Whether you're a seasoned crafter or a curious beginner, everyone is welcome to join us for this unique and enriching experience.

By the end of the 4 weeks, participants will not only have mastered the fundamentals of willow-weaving but also gained a deeper appreciation for its place in our heritage and culture. With their newly-acquired skills, they'll be inspired to continue their creative journey long after the workshops have ended.
