About the event

Pick up a willow wreath from the table by the Welcome Hut then head off on the mile long circular 'Wild Walk' loop in search of natural items to decorate it with - you could use leaves, bracken, grasses, seed heads or twigs.

Bundles of wool are available on the tree next to the table, these contain six short pieces for tying items on to the wreath (you may also be able to tuck items in between the pieces of willow) and one longer piece to use as a hanging loop. To cover the whole of the loop you will need more than one bundle - we are happy to take back anything you don't use!

Buckets containing additional materials are available by the table, you are welcome to take two or three items to add to your wreath if you wish.

You are welcome to make your donation for the wreath and take it away to decorate it with items from your garden instead.

After you have finished with your wreath, the wool can be re-used and the items can be put back outside in a garden where they will break down. The willow wreath will dry and change colour, but if stored somewhere dry it will last and could be used again next year and the year after. 

Willow wreaths are available whilst stocks last, please collect responsibly and have fun!
