WILLOW BIRD SCULPTURE            CODE: 609        10.00 – 16.00

Tutor: Jo Hammond                        £61.20
Suitable for beginners or those with some experience.  You’ll learn to weave natural brown willow into sculptural forms – ideal as decorative pieces for the garden or house.  The bird can be developed into a hen, goose, pheasant or duck once the main body has been made.
Stage one is to make a simple willow framework, then weaving begins, with the aim of tying the frame together for a strong structure and flowing shape.  The freeweave technique creates a curving, dynamic layer of willow, from which the neck can be built, then details like head, legs and tail can be added, ready to take home. NOTE: Willow weaving is moderately hard work and does require a firm grip and the flexibility to bend over and squat down occasionally.
Please bring a packed lunch.
