I aim is to offer a friendly relaxing environment , The workshop will typically begin with an introduction to the materials and tools used in willow weaving, as well as an overview of the basic techniques that will be used; you will then have the opportunity to select your own willow stems and begin working on your sculpture, with guidance and support as and when needed.
As the workshop progresses, you will learn more advanced techniques for shaping the willow and creating intricate details. I will provide tips and tricks for achieving the desired look and feel of the sculpture, and you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and receive feedback on your work.
After the workshop, I will send you information about preparing willow etc., and which wood treatments to use if you want to keep your sculpture outside.
The workshops that I offer are suitable for most experience levels and are available to adults. You will need good hand strength and dexterity; Please note that this is a group workshop if you find it easier to learn one to one then a group workshop may be a challenge for you , please get in touch with me before booking a place to discuss if your not sure.
Please note that as we all work at different speeds, you may not fully fill in your artwork during the workshop my aim is that you will be at the stage where you know how to complete it, at home and carry on at your own leisure. This is a hands on activity I do not provide written notes, you are welcome to take your own if it helps you.
All of the workshops include materials, use of tools, and refreshments you will need to bring your lunch unless otherwise stated.
