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.
As we all work at different speeds my aim is to get you to the stage where you have created a sculpture that is recognisable and that you feel confident to carry on at home should you wish to do so if you haven't completed it in the session
Activities for students who are new to willow sculpture or have some experience, which includes these small piglets. Please note that the level of detail that you will achieve will depend on your level of experience.
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.
The date of this workshop may change if we are advised to do so.
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.
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 you have any questions please click 'Chat with the Maker'.

I had a fabulous day. Jacquie really cared about what she taught us and I ended up with a very characterful hare because of this. The atmosphere was gentle in the class and the 5 of us had a good chat as we were weaving our hares. I would defiantly recommend Jacquie and her willow weaving classes.
Response from JaxsArts Willow Sculpture and Crafts:Thankyou for the lovely feed back Sarah that is most kind I am glad that you enjoyed yourself
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.
