As well as leading my own Willow Sculpture Days I run bespoke full and half day Willow Sculpting courses, (both in animal sculpting and basket making), for a wide variety of clients. These include Coates English Willow, Linley of London, Soho House Group, CoLab Exeter, Social Enterprises, Schools and Corporate Team Building days.
Willow Animal & Basketry Sculpture Days: January – April 2018
All Willow Sculpture Days are suitable for beginners and those with existing willow weaving experience. Just bring along lots of enthusiasm and by the end of the day you will be taking home a willow creation of your chosen animal!
All Willow Sculpture Days start at 9.30am and finish at 5.30pm approximately
Coates English Willow, (Willow & Wetlands Centre), Stoke St. Gregory, Nr. Taunton, Somerset, TA3 6HY
Maximum of 8 participants per day. Price includes refreshments and all materials. Our Sculpture Day includes a backstage tour of Coates. Lunch is available at the adjacent Lemon Tree Coffee House, at an additional cost. Sculpture Days are held in the indoor heated Classroom or Basket Making Workshop. All tools are provided, though you are more than welcome to bring along your favourite pair of secateurs and gardening gloves. Please also bring an apron or wear clothing that you don’t mind getting a little mucky!

You can now book for my January – April 2018 Willow Sculpture Days at Coates English Willow. To book, please fill out the ‘Make a Booking Enquiry’ form.
Due to the demand for the Sculpture Days, (and my need to also be able to work on other projects, teaching, commissions etc.) I do only take bookings on a “first come, first serve, full payment” basis.
Please note that whilst my Willow Sculpture Days do make great presents for family and friends, I do not personally offer a gift voucher service. This is due to the very likelihood that by the time the lucky recipient received the voucher, places will no longer be available for their chosen date! I therefore now advise that, although less of a surprise, if you are gifting a place, please choose the Sculpture Day and date with your lucky recipient. I also strongly advise that if you would like to attend a particular Sculpture Day with friends or family, please make one group booking.
(Please also note that I try my very upmost to update the availability for each Sculpture Day as regularly as I possibly can, but due to the amount of bookings I receive there can very occasionally be a delay between places being allocated and my manual updating this page.
By going to my Contact Page and ticking the box next to ‘SIGN UP TO OUR MAILING LIST!’ you will be able to join my upcoming courses newsletter and receive the next Willow Sculpture Day dates prior to general public release.
