Wire and Willow Sculptures 

Wire and Willow Sculptures, With Louise Harwood 

Wire Bird Sculpture 
Tues 10th April 
10am—4.30pm £90 including materials. 
Including lunch and afternoon cake plus tea/coffee on tap 
 
Spend the day creating an elegant wire Avocet. Louise will start with a brief demonstration and then take you step by step through the weaving process using soft copper wires. 
 
The aim of the workshop is to equip you with the technical skills and confidence to go on and make your own wire sculptures at home. Please bring long nose pliers & either a bradawl or metal skewer (basically anything fine and pointy to help with poking wire through small gaps!) Wire will be provided. 
 
Reference pictures of Avocets will be available to work directly from but if you wanted to do any preparatory sketches on the day then a sketchbook & pencil would be handy.

Willow Goose Sculpture 
Tuesday 12th June 
10am—4.30pm £95 including all materials 
Including lunch and afternoon cake plus tea/coffee on tap 
Weave a life-sized willow goose in one day! Louise will introduce you to basic willow working techniques & then demonstrate alongside you during the creative process. We'll be using British grown willow which can be displayed indoors or outside. Once you've acquired these few simple skills there's no limit to what you can make out of willow from the simplest of little stars to massive sculptural forms (well worth a look at 'willow sculpture' images online for inspiration). All materials will be supplied but please bring a pair of sharp secateurs.

Willow Stars—not just for Christmas! 
Tuesday 7th August 
10am—4.30pm £90 including all materials 
Including lunch and afternoon cake plus tea and coffee on tap 
Spend a day making a 4' willow star! This enjoyable craft is a great introduction into using basic willow working techniques. We'll be using British grown willow which can be displayed inside or outdoors. Louise will take you step by step through the relatively simple construction process. You'll take home a substantial piece of natural artwork to decorate your home & garden & also the skills to carry on making woven art at home, it's quite addictive! The stars look great hung with simple fairy lights but also when decorated with seasonal foliage or beach finds. Willow & bindings will be supplied but please bring (freshly sharpened) secateurs.
