a bit big to wear on your sleeve.

Experience - Willow Weaving Course: Mini Garden Sculptures

On this course we will be concentrating on the skills of random weaving and aim to construct a three dimensional upright sculpture using the shape of a dragonfly elevated on a rod and drilled into a piece of timber.

Alternatively if you have a preference for a particular other form, the same skills can be learnt and used to create a truly individual piece of sculpture. Would you prefer to make a willow ball, hare, chicken, sheep ..any other ideas?
