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.

I spent Tuesday at a local school repairing a willow tunnel that we built with the children about 7 years ago. it needed a big overhaul. the pictures are before and after

We are hoping that the weather will begin to improve soon so that children can enjoy building their willow domes without getting soaked or blown over!
