Wattle Hurdle garden edging/fence making

May 22, 10:00 am1:00 pm

Join James Dyson Rural Crafts Artist and ‘Little Green Man’ Alcindo Pinto in the orchard at The Elms and learn how to make wattle hurdles.

Learn how to make wattle hurdles (fencing panels and garden edging panels) out of natural materials such as hazel or willow. Wattle fencing is made from woven coppiced willow meaning it is cut from new growth, giving it superb flexibility and providing uniform thickness across each fence panel. Enjoy a cup of tea and homemade cake in the Pressoir. Participants will take home a garden edging panel (4’x2′) and the skill and know how to make large fencing panels!
