Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year!

I just want to say a great big thank you to everyone who I’ve sculpted with and worked alongside this year!  The popularity and success of my Willow Sculpture Days has been incredible.  I’ve had such amazing support from Coates English Willow (where I teach my Sculpture Days).  They are a truly fantastic business, (and a brilliant family), who thoroughly deserve the increasing success that they are experiencing.  As many of you who attend my Sculpture Days and courses know,  I’m passionate about Coates not just surviving but thriving, and this year I’ve really been able to see this beginning to happen.  I also want to say a big thank you to everyone who has attended my Willow Sculpture Days.  I now know of previous attendees who have become willow animal artists, who subsequently have attended basketmaking courses, and/or who have become as passionate about Coates, willow and baskets as I am!  Your creativity and enthusiasm is a joy to behold – that’s what I love about teaching you!  May you all have a lovely Christmas and a great 2017 Xx
