About this course and kit

If you want to put aside some time to make a beautiful willow star at home with friends and family, we've got you covered! Our customers absolutely love this kit. It's easy to make, perfect to do in a group and the finished project looks wonderful in your home (Check out some recent customers' stars below).  

During the course you will learn a variety of core willow weaving skills, like how to prepare the willow for weaving, how to select the right rods and how to make willow bend round corners without breaking. By the end you'll be dying to make your first basket.  

What's included in the kit?

  • A bundle of high-quality willow weaving rods (enough to weave your star with a bit extra left over).
  • A soaking bag - your willow will need to be soaked for a couple of hours before you weave it - full instructions are included.
  • Wire ties for holding your willow in place while you are weaving.
  • Fairy lights to decorate your star.
