Tuition & Workshops
Janice offers workshops for people new to gardening and willow weaving to help them get started and develop their knowledge and skills. Janice has worked in the Countryside sector since 2000, and has delivered many interactive workshops in this time.
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 is developing a covered outdoor area for workshops in 2021. Groups will be no more than five, to comply with 'The rule of six'.
