Willow Piglets for the Garden with Willowpool

7th April @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Suitable for complete beginners and experienced willow weavers, this seasonal class invites you to create a piglet for the Garden from soaked willow rods. You will learn how to prepare dried “withies” or willowsticks and how to create frameworks for which to create your willow creature.

Willow sculptures can be used as either indoors or as a garden sculpture. You will be using a few simple tools such as secateurs and bodkins provided on the day. The techniques that you will learn can be applied to other materials and can be scaled up for large site-specific installations.

Materials are all included, just bring your own secateurs and a ribbon and a bell if you wish to decorate your sculpture. Willowpool will provide all the materials, you just need to bring £15 cash on the day.

Willowpool designs are traditional and contemporary willow weavers, who have been weaving with willow for over 40 years.

Maximum 15 people
Minimum age 15 years
£85pp Excluding the materials
