Willow sculptures workshops other options

 I often provide willow sculpture workshops for small groups of people whether it be family or  friends, work colleagues etc who would prefer me to come to a venue that you are comfortable with using.

As with all of my workshops listed below 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. so just to give you some ideas I have listed some of the most poplar choices below  Please feel free to contact me to discuss.

  3 – 4 half day workshops

Small item workshop

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. The small items options are also better 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 I can also use alternative materials should it be preferable.

 

Examples include Hearts, various flowers, bird feeders,  fish, mini birds, dragonfly’s, butterfly’s, small balls, ovals, Garden obelisks and cloches
