About the Course

The first workshop for the year is making large wild birds - small wading birds e.g. egrets, herons, etc. The workshop is suitable for anyone who is new to willow sculpture as well as those with a little experience.

The workshops that I offer fall into two categories:
1. Activities for students who are new to willow sculpture or have some experience:
Small wild birds e.g woodpeckers, herons, duck/chickens , small animals i.e small deer, piglets, lambs as well as medium sized globes and fruit .

2. Workshops for students with some experience.
Pheasants, peacocks, flamingos,detailed chicken, ducks, swans, heron, owl ,fox, medium pig.
Large bird house, mushrooms, large spheres, apples and pears.

Just a little about myself: I have many years experience of teaching crafts and I offer a range of different crafting activities including willow sculpture and introduction to basket weaving and willow lantern making activities.

As well as offering activities at various venues I also provide bespoke activities and training for small groups as well as private booking for special occasions.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included along with drinks and snacks . I will be providing a simple vegetarian lunch of soup or ploughman's . I like to keep my attendee numbers low to enable on a full day workshop with a maximum of 6 participants attending per day.

Please also bring an apron or wear clothing that you like working in. Please note that working with willow can be tiring on the hands and will be difficult for you to do if you have conditions such as arthritis if this is the case please contact me as I many be able to assist you with using alternative materials.

You are welcome to bring your own secateurs and gloves if you wish to.

Further information will be provided at time of booking. Please note that each activity runs on a different day. For further details please visit my website by clicking on the button at the top of this page
