Willow Animal Sculpture
The theme for this course will be to make a willow animal or bird that is approximately 2 feet high. Choose from a Reindeer, a Hare, an Egret, a Heron, a Goose or a Sheep. The course will cover the techniques required and all the tools and materials are supplied including the wire frame. The tutor for the day is local willow weaver and artist Sue Kirk. Sue will also cover how to care for your sculpture so that it can take pride of place in your garden.
We will need to know what animal or bird you want to make at least 2 weeks before the course so that the wire frames can be made in advance.
The course will take place in the Craft Barn at Stanwick Lakes. There are 10 places available but please book early as Sue’s sculpture courses do sell out very quickly. Car parking for the 2 days is free and there is a cafe in the visitors centre for lunch if you don’t want to bring a packed lunch. Please wear comfy clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. The course will start at 9.30am and finish between 4.00 and 4.30pm each day. Please arrive a few minutes early so that the course can start promptly.
