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.
Laura is randing having stated with a three rod wale which makes the structure really strong.
Martin is adding uprights for a super strong final border.
The weavers added Repps Meadow willow for a decorative touch.

Installing the cover…
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.
