Taught by local willow artist Jo Sadler, this fun and creative course will guide you through the process of how to sculpt a deer out of willow.
Using locally sourced willow from Somerset, you will learn the fundamentals of willow weaving, taking home your own beautifully handcrafted 4ft willow deer at the end of the day. This course is suitable for beginners and all materials are provided, but we recommend wearing old and comfortable clothing as this course is very hands-on.
