I will send you brown willow which still has its bark and is suitable for going outside along with instructions to prepare it. The willow will take 5 days to prepare.
I will also include wire to make the feet and information about how to look after your creation.

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 JaxsArts Willow Sculpture and Crafts:Hi, Debbie thank you for a lovely review, it was a pleasure meeting you both.
Thank you for a lovely day, i really enjoyed it and my pig has been much admired. I would like to do another workshop in the future.
Response from JaxsArts Willow Sculpture and Crafts:Hello Jackie thankyou you are most welcome I am glad that you enjoyed the workshop. If you would like me to add you to my mailing list of future workshops please let me know.
I had a fantastic day first time doing something on my own, I was made very welcome.
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.
