We spent a nice 2 days at Culcheth working with the local school as part of their arts week. The weather was really kind and we were able to work outside the whole time.
We worked with the whole school with groups of 30 children at a time. Everyone had a lovely time and we made quite a few sculptures. see the pictures below

Willow Sculpture Projects for Schools

We are running quite a few school projects throughout the summer. Popular sculptures are giant suns, flowers, deer, pigs and wishing trees. The wishing trees are very much in demand as schools can use them in future art projects to display craft items made to celebrate various occasions throughout the year.
we still have some availability for the summer term.









Our willow projects are suitable for children of all ages.
