Examples of items and sculptures that you can make at one of my workshops
Please consider With all workshops the level of the detail that you will achieve is different for each person and how quickly you learn and connect with the material to a proficient level can take a great deal of time and perseverance, some people have a natural affinity to a craft whilst others take a little while longer.
Small scale items £50 -£70
A small item workshop is a great way to dip into willow sculpture and is the one that I would recommend for anyone who would prefer to make a variety of items or doesn’t feel that they would like to start with a larger item.
It is also ideal for anyone who has conditions such as carpal tunnel or arthritis who would like to have a go at working with willow but is nervous that they might not manage that well as the activities are less taxing and I can bring alternative materials should it be preferable.
If you wish to engage me to provide a bespoke workshop for a group of people then we can choose the items that suit you, and works particularly well as an online workshop or short taster session for a couple of hours
Examples of small items include Dragonflies, butterflies, hearts, various flowers, bird feeders, fish, mini birds Christmas trees, stars, fairies/ mini angels.
