Try Something New for 2013…

Does anybody know any basket weavers? Or maybe you fancy having a go at weaving yourself? We have a supply of ready cut (but unsorted) willow withies from the pollarding that our fantastic conservation volunteers have done over the last few weeks.

Willow Withies Available For a Donation

We will be using some of it with many of the groups who come in to do basic bushcraft sessions, however there is more material than we will need. So if anyone would like to have some then it is available to collect for a suitable donation to Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust. Please phone 01425 472760 to arrange a time that is convenient to pick it up. If there is no one in the office please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

If you fancy learning how to weave willow then we are running a ‘Willow Workshop’ at Testwood Lakes Education Centre on  Sat 19th Jan. For more information and to book your place please click here.
