The Wicker Lady not the Wickerman!

Ever fancied learning how to weave willow?

Rachel Evans from Wheatcroftwillow has a workshop at Froghall Wharf just a few miles from The Beehive. Rachel sells her handmade willow baskets as well as offering classes for people to learn this traditional skill.

Sharon, who stayed with us recently, was given a session as a gift experience and made this amazing basket (picture) in just one day.

Learn a new craft and amaze your friends with the results. Or, give it a go and if it’s not for you you can always just buy a basket!
