Festival of Museums - Creating a Perfumed Story Dome
From: 19/05/2012 To: 20/05/2012 10:00 - 17:00
Location: Almond Valley Heritage Centre Millfield, Livingston, West Lothian, EH54 7AR
Phone: 01506 414 957
Throughout the course of the weekend, local craftsman and willow grower Rob Eves will be constructing a four metre dome of living willow, through which honeysuckle and sweet clematis will intertwine to create a magical space for stories and hatching secret plans.
This living creation will become a permanent feature of our adventure garden.
Visitors to Almond Valley will be able to assist in the construction of this special structure, learn new skills, and discover the history and traditions of weaving with willow.
Staff and volunteers from Almond Valley will be on hand to extend the fun, leading workshops to create willow crowns, magic wands, and advising children on fantastic ideas for advanced den building techniques.
Saturday 19 May and Sunday 20 May 10am-5pm
Normal admission prices apply: Adults £5.50, Children £4
