Tutor: Alistair Hayhurst 

Using a traditional Somerset pattern, you will be taught how to make a woven willow panel to take home. The woven panels make attractive garden screens and the skills learnt will allow you to continue with future garden projects. 
You will learn: 

Siting a hurdle clamp 

Selecting suitable hazel zales (uprights) and setting within the clamp 

Selecting and grading willow withies 

Building the bottom, infill and finishing weave 

Installation and maintenance techniques 

When constructed and maintained correctly, willow hurdles are durable and long lasting and can be made all year round.
