Willow Obelisk Workshop

Willow Obelisk Workshop

Hand craft a willow obelisk for your garden and give your home grown peas or sweet pea flowers the climbing support they need. Straw Craft Ireland will guide you through the necessary techniques to create your own hand-crafted willow obelisk to take home.

Straw Craft Ireland is based at the shores of Lough Neagh in North Armagh; an area steeped in the history of traditional Irish crafts. They provide beautifully intricate items woven in straw in a traditional and uniquely Irish plaiting method as well as promoting the continuance of ancient traditional Ulster and Irish crafts, customs and culture, click here for further details of their work .

This is a free activity but as places are limited booking is essential; this workshop is suitable for 18+.
