If you are stuck for ideas as to what to buy someone for Christmas why not consider a Willow Workshop Gift Card. These can be redeemed at any time over the next 12 months to cover the cost of one of my Willow Sculpture Day Workshops held at Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham, Cheshire. I have dates available throughout 2022. All bookings are freely transferable in the event of any Covid restrictions.
I ran the first Willow Sculpture Workshop back at Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham last week since the first lockdown. It was lovely to be back. I will be running regular dates there again throughout 2022. The room is large so even with the maximum number of 6 participants we can stay well spread out with everyone having their own table. There is an outside door which will remain open along with opening skylights so airflow through the room is great.

I will be teaching a Willow Basketmaking day on Friday 8th October between 9.30 and 4pm at the Cheshire Crafts Workshop at Blakemere Village near Sandiway in Cheshire. We will be making traditional willow round baskets with or without handles depending on how fast you work. I will provide an assortment of willow (some locally grown) for you to choose from so you can make the design your own using the natural colours of the bark.
I have arranged some dates at Castle Park Arts Centre for my 1-day Willow Sculpture Workshops
I always try and upload an image of my latest commissioned willow sculptures so look out for my new stuff there.
Caroline will again be teaching a 2-day Willow Sculpture Workshop at The Woodland Skills Centre at Bodfari, Denbighshire. This is a beautiful venue overlooking the Clwydian mountains with its own campsite if you fancy staying over. The workshop will take place over the weekend of 12th/13th September 2020. Ideal for tackling a bigger sculpture such as deer, sheep or a small flock of birds. For further details and booking go to www.woodlandskillscentre.co.uk.
These are difficult times for us all. I am unable to run my workshops at the present time but I can’t wait for things to change and to get back into the teaching environment.
I am happy to teach small groups or individuals at my home studio.
In the light of the Covid restrictions on my teaching workshops I find myself in the unusual position of having extra time in my studio.
I will be running willow sculpture workshops starting in September.
