January 2015 events

It is willow time folks! yes, time to bring in the crops and maybe get some fence edging done too if our weather cooperates. Work dates at MOP for the month of January are as follows:

Saturdays January 17 and 24 and Sundays January 18 and 25 11am-2pm each day*

* Technically, with a crew of 5 to 8 people it should only take 2 days… we have 4 dates booked so If the weather is super lousy we can  end early, if it is a monsoon, we don’t have to go at all…  but light to moderate mists and drizzle don’t stop us!

Dress for the weather, bring a  cup for tea, a snack to share if you wish and your own clippers and gloves if you have them. we have gloves and  clippers for group use too.

If weather shines upon us and the crops come in early we  will harvest some  hazel and look at what weaving projects can be done early in the season on the final work dates.

To help get you excited about outdoor winter work sessions and how awesome they can be, here are some of my favourite images of past  willow harvests:
