Our full day willow reindeer / deer course is £80. The price includes all the materials and specialist tools required to make a beautiful willow reindeer together with refreshments and lunch. Attendees will come away with something gorgeous, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal.
As well as taking home your own willow creation, there will also be an opportunity to see how willow is grown and processed on our working farm. Visitors are welcome to walk through our withy fields and enjoy the amazing variety of wildlife that the Somerset Levels has to offer.
The reindeer / deer course is an excellent workshop to get you in the festive spirit. But a willow reindeer isn’t just for Christmas! It will look wonderful in a garden at any time of year.
After refreshments on arrival, this course begins with the making of willow balls and hoops to mould the shape of the head and body. Our tutors are among the most experienced willow weavers in the country. They are on hand to provide one-to-one assistance and answer any weaving questions you may have. Our tutors will ensure you have an enjoyable day and leave with something you are proud to have made.
No previous experience is necessary to complete this course.
