This lovely festive workshop is for families interested in learning to make Christmas decorations in a quiet, calm and supportive environment.

With a maximum of 4 adults and 4 children on this course (one adult with one child), you are guaranteed a lot of support from your tutor who will guide you through the process of making a selection of sustainable Christmas crafts, from wood cookie decorations to printed tree cards, bird feeders, Nordic braiding and Swedish stars. The choice is yours!

The course covers:

· Willow crafts

· Nordic braiding

· Printed tree collage cards

· Wood cookies decorations

What previous participants have said:

“I really enjoyed using the willow and achieving something lovely to take home. My daughter loved the card making and making the corn dolly bird feeder.”

‘The braiding game was so much fun!’

“I really enjoyed revisiting skills I’d forgotten. Braiding was great. Fab activity to support concentration and coordination with my daughter who has sensory processing difficulties.”

“I enjoyed spending time with my daughter without distraction. Loved the willow weaving- amazed at how beautiful it looked! “
