Norbert Platz is a willow wizard from West Cork. Visitors to our garden have admired several of his willow structures, scarecrows, dragons as well as willow tunnels, plant covers and baskets.
A few years ago we planted a willow garden here on the farm so we can now harvest our own willows and have fun making willow structures.
This year we plan to create a long wiggly worm in the wild flower meadow.
On this intensive course you will learn how to harvest and prepare willows and the basic techniques needed to create a variety of willow structures in your own garden.
Coffee on arrival and light lunch included.
