About the Course
This workshop introduces you to creating and making large scale willow sculpture that we work together on.
The day starts of at 10 am with informal introduction and safety awareness of the space. We will look at willow in its dry and wet state and begin to handle and learn techniques to manipulate it. The work will progress through the day, immersing you into the wonderful rhythm of weaving, at creative nature we differ from other courses in that we create the artwork to be donated to community groups and schools. So you take home memories and new skills.
Stephen your tutor has been working with willow for over 30 years and trained as a sculptor and forest school teacher.

Amazing workshop. Stephen was so friendly and helpful and I think its the best course I have done! Really enjoyed working with a new material and making my designs come to life. I would recommend it to everyone. Thank you

This was a great experience. I worked with a group of strangers who, over the course of the day became my friends and at the same time we created a willow sculpture which surpassed all my expectations. Working collectively to create a thing of beauty lifted my spirits and gave me new ideas and skills to take home with me. I have great plans for the garden this summer. Stephen, the teacher was quite inspirational and we had tea and cake. What's not to like!
