WILLOW weavers in Shipham got crafty at a workshop on Friday.

Sophie Courtiour, famous for her striking willow crafts of the Beast of the Black Down Hills near Blagdon and Leaping Deer on the A303, gave lessons on the art form to residents in the Somerset village.

The theme of the workshop was Christmas and residents tried their hands at creating stars.

The workshop was held at Shipham Active Living in the village hall.
