Bee willow sculpture Butser Ancient Farm ( South Downs)

Students with bees


As a willow sculptor, I love sharing my craft with others, so whether you're a total novice who is curious and has always fancied having a go, or someone who has some experience and enjoys experimenting and trying something different I have plenty of options for you choose from.

Bees are such interesting creatures; create a great statement piece and unusual sculpture for your home or garden, you can create a honey bee or bumblebee or any bee of your choice.
As we all work at different speeds my aim is to get you to the stage where you have created a sculpture that is recognizable and that you feel confident to carry on at home should you wish to do so.

Please note that if you have a condition that affects your strength or mobility in your wrist/hands that this activity may cause difficulties for you.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

All materials and tools

You will need to bring your own lunch
I will send you joining details approximately one week before the workshop is due to take place

I thoroughly enjoyed my willow weaving day. It was great to be able to have a whole day to do something creative and take home two obelisks for the garden and a dragonfly.
We were very well looked after will plenty of snacks, fruit and drinks. I recommend this to everyone.

Had a really enjoyable day with my sister on the willow piglet course. Jacqui was very knowledgeable and friendly in teaching us complete novices. Was a real bonus to be able to take home a fully completed willow pig. Would fully recommend it and I am interested in doing another course.

Response from Willow and Crafts:

Hi, Debbie thank you for a lovely review, it was a pleasure meeting you both.
I hope that the journey home went well
Best wishes

I had a fantastic day first time doing something on my own, I was made very welcome.
Food good.
Great teacher.
People can't believe I made the piglet myself (they said I must of bought it).
I also loved that everything was provided, it was so much easier.

Response from Willow and Crafts:

Im glad that you had a lovely time , thankyou for sharing
Best wishes Jacquie
