Plant Support Workshop

Join Lorraine for a half-day or full-day, outdoor craft workshop and make a selection of plant supports you can be proud of! The workshop is set within the picturesque location of Birtley Woodland Art Space. We will use Willow or Hazel to create our plant supports, a large majority of these materials are coppiced and harvested locally.

The Workshop

Our full-day workshop will provide you with sufficient time to make a mini-Obelisk as well as a large Obelisk plus either a large decorative Trellis, Cylindrical Plant Support or Cloche! We use various styles of weaving to create the plant supports, we will demonstrate these styles on the day and are happy for you to be creative with your own designs!

In our morning workshop, you will be able to choose from one of the following options:

  • A mini-Obelisk plus a large Obelisk
