Explore the possibilities of willow sculpture-making with Leilah Vyner in this special Christmas workshop.

During this one-day workshop you will learn the technique of weaving willow, working to construct free-standing animal sculptures. Willow weaving is a fascinating and environmentally sustainable sculptural process, each sculpture is made purely from willow with no metal frame or support structures. By the end of the session you will have constructed a festive animal approximately 4ft high for you to take home and decorate.

This workshop includes all your materials as well as a mince pie and a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate.
