Willow weaving wonders!

The community volunteer team at Anglesey Abbey got together on a beautifully chilly February day to carry out some much needed repairs to the sensory tunnel. 

Under the expert instruction of Jane Frost, a local willow-weaving guru, we wove away! Maddie even had a go sawing – a great way to keep warm!! 

We have added supports, as our poor willow tunnel was starting to wilt, so hopefully our tunnel will cope with the hundreds of children who love to run through on their way to the treehouse! We have added some circular peep-holes too.

With the left-over willow, we have run some willow weaving with visiting families which have gone down really well.

Why not pop down to the treehouse to inspect our handiwork?!
