As the cold weather draws in and wild food becomes scarce this is the time of year when we like to do what we can to help the local birdlife. A great way to do this is to create a small birdhouse from willow.
The type of entrance that you create will vary depending on the type of birds that you wish to attract, it may be round or square, large or small and will measure approximately 32cm x 14cm.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
All materials and tools will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer to.
Please note that working with willow and using small tools can be tiring on the hands and requires a good level of hand dexterity. this may be difficult to do if you have arthritis or a similar condition, so please let us know if you need buff willow instead of the traditional brown (which is much tougher) as it’s kinder on the hands.
Please wear clothing you are comfortable working in.
Refreshments are provided please provide your own lunch

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.
