Our full day willow deer/reindeer course is priced at £75 and include all materials, lunch and refreshments. You will come away with something beautiful, strong, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal to you.
As well as taking home your own willow creation, you can also see the willow being grown and processed at first hand, taking in one of Somerset’s oldest crafts. Visitors are welcome to walk through the withy fields and enjoy the amazing variety of wildlife that the Somerset Levels has to offer.
The deer/reindeer course is an excellent workshop to get you into the Festive spirit. This ‘deer’ little reindeer will look wonderful on the lawn for many years to come all year round, not just for Christmas.
To start the course, you will begin by creating willow balls and hoops to mould the shape of the head and body. Our tutors are some of the most experienced willow weavers in the UK, so if you have any questions throughout the day or need any assistance please do not hesitate to ask them (they are a wealth of knowledge). They will ensure you have the very best instruction and help throughout your time with us at Musgrove Willows.
No previous experience is necessary to complete the course, complete beginners will amaze themselves with what they can achieve with the guidance of our tutors.
