How to create a Willow Sculpture
With Dave Gosling & Tony Davies - local sculptors
Willow structure of the type taught at the workshop ‘Impressive structures can be achieved in a day’ says Dave Gosling.
Dave and Tony will explain the story behind willow weaving and how it lead them into creating these amazing sculptures.
The day’s activity will start with an introduction followed by a talk and demonstration of techniques. Questions will be welcomed. Then everyone will be encouraged to start their sculpture – like riding a bike, the best way is to get into the saddle! They will then circulate around ensuring that everyone is happy and confident with their project. This format has worked really well for them in the past and ensures individual attention as well as a community feeling. The lunch break will take place at an appropriate time and then continue with the sculptures until the end of the day.
This is the perfect opportunity for the absolute beginner to sculpting and willow weaving, or to those who wish to improve their skill and benefit from the inspiration of two amazing professionals in a beautiful setting.
Please bring a pair of secateurs with you.
