Description

Come and spend a unique day with your little one and enjoy the ancient craft of willow basket making!

Join us for a day at Milntown where you and your little one will create your very own shared willow basket under the expert tutorship of Master Weaver John ‘Dog’ Callister and Kevin Quayle in our marquee. You will have an opportunity to wander around the beautiful gardens during lunch, when you will also both receive a packed lunch to be eaten in the marquee or around the garden.

You can view some of ‘Dog’s’ work on the Estate if you take a trip to the Mill Pond – you will be greeted by our five delightful willow dragonflies. Each of these carefully crafted insects took almost two days to complete. With a 3-foot wingspan they are the size of Pterodactyls and have been carefully positioned so they appear to be flying just above the surface of the mill pond.

You will be provided with all the information, the materials and any tools needed. A sharp pair of secateurs though would be useful if you have them.

You will go home with a willow basket you will both be proud of and memories of a wonderful outing to Milntown.
