Spend a day of creativity in the Hampshire countryside and get ready for Christmas with this 3-hour festive star willow workshop. Make a large willow star covered in random weaving and decorate it with fairy lights. Hang it on your front door instead of a wreath, show it off on the top of your tree or display it on a wall all year round. Various sizes are possible up to about 50cm across.

Held in the historic Dyers Barn on the Chawton House estate, this will be a socially-distanced outdoor winter workshop and a wonderful day out with friends. The workshop will be led by Farnham-based willow weaver and basket-maker, Judith Needham.
