Gather fresh willow or Dogwood from your school grounds in Autumn, after the leaves have dropped, or order dry willow from a supplier and soak it for a couple of days beforehand.
Stems should be around 1 metre in length.
Secateurs (to be used under supervision or by adults only)
Large dustbin/container to soak dry willow if required
String,cable ties, scissors and glue (for decorating)
Collected natural materials
Be careful when handling willow stems and make sure you have plenty of room to work to avoid eye damage. Or wear eye protection glasses.
Willow is a thirsty tree, stems will root very easily and should not be planted near to water drainage systems!
