CHANCES to learn a traditional rural craft and enjoy a spectacular spring show are on offer at a beauty spot near Stafford next month.

Cannock Chase AONB, the group which manages the Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is hosting a willow weaving workshop on April 11. It will include lunch provided by a local farmer.

The session runs from 9am to 3pm and tickets cost £20 or £15 for AONB members.

Emma Beaman, assistant AONB officer, said: “This day is a great opportunity to learn a new skill and to take your three creations home with you. This will be a fun and informative day, and willow objects make lovely garden ornaments and presents, so it should be a worthwhile day.”
