Spend the day in the comfortable surroundings of Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham, Cheshire and learn from Caroline how to make birds and animals entirely from willow. You decide what you would like to make, with the only restriction being one of time. Talk to Caroline beforehand if you have a specific idea, she always loves a challenge! You will go home at the end of the day with a piece of art you will be proud of.
Happy New Year! 2019 is going to be interesting in many ways (and I’m not going to mention the dreaded B****T that is looming). I am going to be working as part of a team building a replica Bronze Age Round House at Beeston Castle in Cheshire. We start making our authentic Bronze Age tools in a couple of weeks and then it will be full steam ahead harvesting materials and creating the timber frame.
Gift cards make great presents.
I can make up a gift card for any monetary value you wish. This can then be redeemed against the purchase of a willow sculpture or a place on one of my willow sculpture workshop days.
Just to be clear, the gift card costs you nothing, all your payment can be redeemed against a future purchase.

I have just uploaded the dates of my day workshops at Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham, Cheshire for 2019. Cost will remain at £70 and class size is small, no more than 6 people. You can make whatever you want within the time constraints and Caroline will help you achieve something you will be proud of. No experience necessary.

Caroline has created some new willow sculptures to dress one of the cross country fences at the next British Eventing Horse Trials competition at Kelsall Hill Equestrian Centre in Cheshire on 21st, 22nd and 23rd September.
‘Handstand Man’ , a lifesize representation of absolute joy, will be tumbling his way across the fields alongside his faithful two hounds.
Caroline has been appointed as Artist in Residence at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool for the second year. Following on from the success of her 2017 residency, Caroline has been asked back to work with 2 new wards during the autumn of this year. “I can’t wait to work with the children, families and staff again. It was such a privilege last year to be welcomed into what can be a frightening exhausting and stressful situation and to help make some amazing sculptures.
My willow sculpture “The Apiary” has now been installed in the Radiology Courtyard at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. This piece is the legacy arising from my residency working with children, families and staff on one of the surgical wards over 16 sessions during the autumn of 2017. There is also a sculpture of a slinking fox made in conjunction with the children and staff on Ward 3A installed on the play deck at the end of the ward.
So, the “Beast from the East” freezing weather has meant the frogs have sensibly hidden away again. Winter seems to be back for now.
Looking forward I have just updated my workshop pages with dates through the summer. I hope to meet you.
Spring must be on its way at last, the frogs have started arriving back in my pond today. Bulbs are starting to show their spiky leaves above ground and my thoughts are turning to seed sowing.
I have one place left on my sculpture workshop this coming Friday so why not celebrate the arrival of spring by making something amazing for your garden with my help.
