About Willow Star Workshop with Anna Cross

In these half-day workshops for adults, you will learn how to create a beautiful willow star to adorn your home. Places are limited, so book now to secure your morning or afternoon slot!

What you'll do:
Select from willow prepared by Anna to make your star, choosing from one of two designs. Suitable for beginners and seasoned crafters alike, Anna will guide you through the weaving process. You can then decorate your star with ribbon for hanging, or leave it as is for a more rustic look.

What's included:
• Full instruction from Anna in making your chosen star design
• All materials, including willow and ribbon to decorate your finished star
• Tea, coffee and a festive sweet treat

Anna Cross has been working creatively with willow for 11 years, combining traditional skills with artistic practice. Learn more about her work on our blog, including the willow sculptures she created for the National Museum of Rural Life’s Willow Sculpture Trail.

Please note that museum admission is not included in the Workshop price. For general museum entry, including Festive Family Crafts, please also book a museum entry ticket.
