Round Work

Our second weaving session was taken up with round work, starting with some structures that will be used to cover unsightly items around the site. We used boards with pre-drilled holes to start the structures off and made a simple but effective top by folding over the remaining willow withies.

And here’s the result. Good job!

In the afternoon we made wigwams for plant supports. We left them up near the visitors centre because they look so good.
