Create a sitting or moon gazing hare, an animal steeped in mystery and storytelling and a lovely addition to your home or garden.
Students will learn a variety of techniques including a variety of basketry techniques and freeform weaving.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who is new to willow sculpture as well as those with little experience.
I am currently using the Wickham Centre near Fareham Hampshire I am happy to travel please note that there will be an additional fee to visit other venues.
I like to keep my attendee numbers low to enable me to provide support and advice where needed, I limit my places to a maximum of 8 participants and for this course, this has been reduced to 5 attending to comply with current guidelines, please contact me before booking a place as I only have 2 spaces left
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.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools and materials are included along with refreshments, sealed snacks disposable cutlery, etc.
Please note that masks will need to be worn whilst moving around the center and room. I provide clear masks for use if you prefer to use them in the room.
Please also bring an apron or wear clothing that you like working in and your own lunch. You are welcome to bring your own secateurs and gloves if you wish to all of my tools etc are put in isolation between workshops and so are safe to use.
I follow advice related to working in a covid secure space including using hand sanitation etc, the venue is cleaned before we use it.
I will send you joining details a week before the workshop. If you have any questions please contact me.

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.
