Somerset Willow Fair

Well I am back - a few days later than expected but I have had a week off work and I took advantage of it! I will make up for missing so many posts - I hope!

Yesterday I went to Somerset Willow Fair in Vivary Park in Taunton. It's a little celebration of willow weaving and basket making set up by several small interested parties from the Somerset Levels.

It was a great little event, lots of demonstrations and classes going on, in fact it's still running today for anyone who can pop down! I was particularly impressed with all the work the companies had been doing with the local schools, it seems every school around had some sort of willow monster, dragon, dinosaur or similar to show off. At least one of the schools had created a living willow covered seating area - that will look fantastic in a year or two I reckon.

Anyway - here is what has got to be the biggest, walk-in, woven watering can in the world... unless you know different?
