About the Course
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.
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.

What's included in the price?
All tools and materials are included along with refreshments and fruit and cakes
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
