Coming Soon……..Project Igloo1>
Despite not having a glorious summer, I’ve often thought our garden space, as large as it is, lacks features and is quite exposed. Trying to find solutions such as awnings or sunsails were financially challenging. So I went back to the drawing board.
Our needs were to provide an interesting space to use as an out-door room. Offering shade, a little bit of shelter from light rain and wind. And something easy on the eye.
By chance, I got talking to a willow craftsmen at a local church fete and he showed me a photograph of a willow igloo, like the one above. It’s made by weaving together living willow strips, to create a leafy, shady den for the children to play in, make music in, have snacks in, read books in………
So next week, I’ve booked him to come and consider a suitable location for an igloo in our garden. He’s told me already that we will need to remove the top layer of turf ourselves, so if there are any willing parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts etc who are interested in being involved in Project Igloo, please let me know. Bring a spade!
