Description

Come and make a 2-3 foot willow hare for your home or garden with local Somerset artist Jo Sadler of Forged n Willow. Jo will guide you through each step to create a hare sculpture using locally grown willow from the levels. Wear older clothes as it can get grubby, bring your own secateurs if you like, and plenty of enthusiasm! Tutor Information Jo Sadler has been weaving with willow for over four years now and makes a wide variety of sculptures from Chickens to Deer, Arches for Weddings, bespoke commissions and runs courses to make sculpture. She is a supplier to the National Trust and made Barrington Court a gaggle of geese for their Easter trail as well as creating winter displays for last two years in the grounds. She has several deer displayed at Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens which appeared at Dillington House last Christmas pulling the sleigh! She is currently about to open a unit at Broadwindsor Craft Centre where she will also run future courses and sell sculptures. Her passion for weaving is never ending and she really appreciated going on a course which just opened the door to a complete new creative world. She is learning to weld so she can expand into metal sculpture and hopes to use more materials too.
