About

You will be met at Bluebell Lane by artist weaver, Jeanette Keenan, for a short guided woodland walk, visiting a replica Celtic Iron Age Roundhouse and neighbouring Sailleagh Gardens. You will experience the native woodlands at Bluebell Lane and learn how sustainability is key to how we share heritage skills, like willow weaving and woodland crafts. Continuing the short stroll to the woodland craft area, the hearty Irish welcome is completed with tea & coffee served with local home made bread. So, to the main event, when you will weave a boat-shaped serving platter using organic, sustainably sourced willow, with step by step guidance from Jeanette. Jeanette talks about the history of weavers in rural Ireland and shares some local stories about the legendary warrior Cúchulainn.

All tools and materials are provided for this experience and there is free onsite parking and amenities. The event takes place indoor and outdoor, please be advised to wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear for the short walks through the woodlands. Note when booking for others that willow weaving can be difficult for people with significant arthritis in the hands.
