Come weave with us!
This listing is to purchase a spot for one participant in our Willow Wreath Weaving Workshop on Saturday, December 16, 2023 from 1:00-2:30 PM at our farm in Willseyville, NY. After you reserve a spot in the class, we will email you with more information and our farm address, and will send a reminder closer to the workshop date.
This is a great opportunity to visit our farm, walk through our vibrant, colorful willow patch, and learn about willow cultivation! Come by yourself, or gift a spot for a friend or family member. Children are welcome with adult supervision. This class is recommended for kids 10+. If you plan to weave with your child, please purchase a spot for them and yourself.
Participants will harvest their own fresh willow in any color of the rainbow and will weave an elegant willow wreath to take home!
-Weaving a Willow Wreath is an *outdoor* workshop on our working farm. Please wear warm clothes and footwear appropriate for muddy or icy/snowy conditions, and bring a pair of gardening gloves to wear.
-If you own a pair of hand pruning shears (like Felcos), please bring them along. We have extras to loan to workshop participants if you do not bring pruning shears.
-If the weather is terrible, we will harvest our willow and then weave the wreaths in one of our greenhouses.
-We have 2 farm kitties, so please leave your beloved pups at home!
-This will be workshop on our working farm. Purchasing a spot in our willow weaving class makes you aware of the dangers of visiting a farm. Under the Tree and Under the Tree Farm are not liable for any injuries that may occur while participating in our workshop.
