In addition we are providing a demonstration of making the Living Willow Structures which are featured in the gardens

Living Willow Classes
Living Willow can add an unusual feature to the garden. Because Willow is so easy to root it is the perfect medium for these creative additions to the garden. Willow is harvested for this in January and February so workshops in this art form are held during these two months. The fee for participants is €25 per person.
A limited amount of willow is available each year for off-site projects. Contact by phone or email to book a place.
Whether you want to learn how to prune your roses, divide your daisies or pot on your seedlings, we run workshops to give you practical help and hands-on experience to increase your skills! Participants always go away with a small memento of Gortnalee. Workshop fees are €25 per person and limited to 4 participants.
