Additional information

The workshops are designed to meet all levels of experience and the level of detail that you will achieve will depend on your previous experience. If you need advice please contact me.

Spaces usually book up quickly if there are any still available the minimum notice that I require is as follows

  • One week to create an item using the traditional brown willow and
  • 3 days notice  if you are happy to use buff willow (this is not suitable for staying outside in cold/wet weather.)

Please note that working with willow and can be tiring on the hands and may be difficult for you to do if you have conditions such as arthritis or find it hard to grip and pull. If your not sure or have any concern please contact me in advance to discuss as I may be able to assist you with using alternative materials.

What to expect
I like to keep my attendee numbers low to enable me to provide the support and advice where needed and I  limit my places to a maximum of 8 participants attending per workshop.

If the workshop is full and I receive enough interest I will organize a second workshop. If the workshops do not have enough attendees to make it viable I will cancel it and postpone it to another date in such cases students will be entitled to a refund or a place on another workshop.

Private workshops I provide occasional group bookings for friends, families, etc if you are interested in discussing this possibility please contact me. Please note that option is not always available as at certain times of the year I am extremely busy showing my work at art exhibitions. shows etc and providing activities at  events etc

Please wear clothing that you like working in. You are welcome to bring your own secateurs and gloves if you wish to.
