Roald Dahl Willow Weaving

This exciting family friendly event will give you and your child the opportunity to work with a professional willow artist in Tatton Park's beautiful gardens. You will contribute towards making a giant Mr Twit structure, which will be displayed in the gardens for the remainder of the Roald Dahl year, as well as making your own bird sculpture to take home - inspired by the clever birds from this hilarious tale. The session is hands on, fun and gives children their first taster of this special craft. The ticket fee includes park entry (usually £6) and garden entry (usually £10), which means you can explore the three tremendous Roald Dahl trails available in the gardens during your visit. The activity is suitable for children aged 6 and above
