Weave your own Willow Flower Vase

Join me for a fabulous weaving workshop at The Redbank in Carrick on Shannon on Saturday 4th June 10am-12.30pm

To celebrate the return of Carrick Carnival, Helena will host a morning workshop where each participant will learn to weave their own Willow Flower Vase.  This promises to be a wonderfully creative event, where you will learn about the willow, its growth and harvesting, you will practise 2-3 styles of weaving and become immersed in this tactile, sustainable, ancient craft to produce your own eye-catching willow flower vase. What better way to display your fresh flowers than in a unique, eco-friendly, hand made vase.

Starts 10am sharp, finishes by 12.30pm

Regular Price €55 – Early Bird Carvival Rate €50 if you book during April. Price includes materials and tuition – just add flowers!!

This workshop will be followed by a Demo / Q&A with Helena which will be open to the general public from 12.30 so you can learn about this wonderfully sustainable and ancient craft from our own Leitrim Basketmaker!
