Create a willow duck or chicken sculpture for your garden. This is a great workshop for anyone who would love to keep chickens ducks, etc but hasn't got the time or room for one; as well as those of you who already have a mini flock and would love an addition to your home.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who is new to willow sculpture as well as those with a little experience.
This activity is taking place outside under shelter at Butser Ancient Farm in the South Downs National Park
Just a little about myself:
I have many years of experience of teaching crafts and I offer a range of different crafting activities relating to working with willow sculpture, basic weaving willow and lantern making activities.
The workshops that I offer fall into two categories:
1. Activities for students who are new to willow sculpture or have some experience, examples of which include, hearts, small garden and nature items, Christmas crafts, large wild birds, domestic birds, small animals i.e piglets, , hares, spheres and fruit e.g apples and pears.
2. Workshops for students with some experience of willow sculpture. Pheasants, peacocks, flamingos, small owls, fox, medium pig, deer, large bird house, mushrooms, large spheres.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools and materials are included along with basic refreshments and snacks
I like to keep my attendee numbers low to enable me to provide the support and advice where needed and limit my places to a maximum of 8 participants attending per day.
Please also bring an apron or wear clothing that you like working in. 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 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.
Please note that each activity runs on a different day. For further details please visit my website by clicking on the button at the top of this page

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.
