Willow Sculpture (1 day) in the Peak District



A taster day at Zantium Studios using willow to create simple sculptural forms. Practise random weave techniques to make a sphere, heart, pod, fish or bird. Open to all – both beginners and those with experience. No experience necessary for this fun and accessible medium. The class may be garden or studio-based, depending on the weather. Caroline will introduce you to the techniques she uses for her own willow structures. Learn how to prepare and manipulate the material to form 3 dimensional works of art.
