Tuition & Workshops

Janice offers workshops for people new to gardening to help them get started and develop their knowledge and skills.


She also offers willow weaving sessions, including obelisks, border edging and bird feeders.

Gardening Workshops for 2022 are being planned and will be posted here.

My Willow Workshops are currently booking up really quickly!

I let people on my mailing list know first, and so far they have booked up before they have made it to my website.

So, please contact me to be added to the mailing list.

(I promise not to send endless emails on a weekly or daily basis!)

All workshops are held in our garden in the beautiful village of Sawdon. They include some theory and discussion, but also plenty of practical/hands-on time out in the garden with opportunities to ask questions.

To comply with Covid requirements, Janice has developed a covered outdoor area for workshops. For winter, she will run workshops using local village halls. Groups will be small, to allow suitable social distancing.


Bookings can be amended if Covid prevents you from attending.


Contact by email is easier as answering queries can be difficult when  you're up to

your knees in plants, compost and willow. If you'd rather ring, please be ready to

leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
