About the Course

Amanda Rayner will lead this willow sculpture workshop in the Tithe Barn at Usk Castle. You will be welcomed with a hot cuppa and introduction for a 10am start.

Bring along ideas and pictures of what you would like to make and as long as you don't plan on taking home a giraffe many things should be possible. In the past things that have been made on this workshop include; chickens, ducks, geese, owls, pheasants, rabbits, hares, cats, dogs, small, pigs, lions, turtles, sheep, spheres and fruit to name a few.

We will start with constructing the framework and cover several techniques to create a wide variety of sculptures using only willow.

Want to review this course?

I have attended a few of Amanda's workshops now and am impressed with her knowledge and skills not to mention patience with us all. The sculpture workshop I found challenging but extremely rewarding as my odd shape eventually became a snake complete with several wiggles!
On that workshop others made chickens,pheasants,cats,balls,obelisks and Amanda never once lost her cool and hopped about between us encouraging guiding and tweaking until we had all finished with great results.
The cake was delicious!
