Using ancient willow weaving techniques create your own willow owl sculpture on this exclusive day workshop.
This year we are offering a brand new willow animal sculpture day - owls! Kim will teach you the techniques of this craft based art form, so you can create your very own contemporary sculpture for your home or garden.
During the workshop you will be using farmed Somerset willow together with multi-coloured willow grown in Dorset, while learning about the preparation techniques for colours and applications. By the end of the day you will have created your very own sculpture to take home. Don’t forget to leave room in your car to fit your sculpture in!
