Willow piglet / small pig workshop with Jacqueline Rolls

Willow pig


Create a cute willow pig, a great introduction to sculpting animals.

You will learn a number of techniques including random weave and basketry techniques. The workshop is suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

Please note that the level of detail that you will achieve will depend on your level of experience. The workshops that I offer fall into two categories:

1. Activities for students who are new to willow sculpture or have some experience, which includes these small piglets.

2. Workshops for students with some experience, please see my other listings:

Just a little about myself:
I have many years of experience in teaching crafts and I offer a range of different crafting activities, my main specialism is working with willow and includes, willow sculpture and willow weaving.

Dates can be arranged depending on interest and demand. If you are interested in booking please use the 'chat with the maker' tab to contact in advance.

I need a minimum number of 4 people to book on to the course, if we are using the hall to cover hire costs, so I may need to advertise the workshop or if you have a venue in mind please contact me to discuss.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included along with sealed snacks.

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 attending per day.

Please note 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.

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 via the 'Ask a question' button as I may 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 the time of booking.

All tools and materials are included along with sealed drinks and snacks.

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.
I hope that the journey home went well
Best wishes

I had a fantastic day first time doing something on my own, I was made very welcome.
Food good.
Great teacher.
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.
