Careys Secret Garden
We are all about eco-Christmas at Carey’s Secret Garden - be part of it - by moving away from plastic tat and making your Christmas extra special. In this workshop, you will be making a selection of willow and rush Xmas tree decorations. Including willow reindeer..add a red nose, Xmas trees...add a little tinsel snow to the top, and an 8" rush angel for the top of your tree, plus stars, and mini wreath hoops.
Event leader Yanina Stockings has been inspired by nature, after growing up in the Highlands of Scotland surrounded by the ancient Caledonian pine forests. With a BSc Hons in conservation, sustainability is important and all of her willow and rush is sourced here in the south of England, and where possible Yanina harvests her own locally. She trained as a teacher at Southampton University in 2009 and now runs many varied willow workshops making this ancient rural craft accessible to everyone.
A hot drink will be provided but please bring your own lunch or purchase a delicious light lunch, cake or ice cream from the Secret Salt Pig.
