Willow Weave a Chicken


In stock


Spend a fun and creative day weaving a lifelike chicken sculpture to enhance your garden or perhaps to make a really special gift.

Mainly using a random weave, this is a class where, once you’ve learnt the basics, you don’t have to concentrate too hard and you can chat as you weave! There are, however, some interesting techniques to learn for the details of legs, comb and tail feathers – all borrowed from traditional basket making.

This workshop is taught by Judith Needham who is an expert in the art form…and lovely with it!

There is plenty of room for creativity and you don’t even need to stick to chickens. Any bird of a similar size is possible – whether real or the product of your imagination. You bring the ideas and I will help you turn them into sculpture!

Suitable for beginners and those who have worked with willow before.

£80. All materials will be provided (including a metal framework to weave onto).

Refreshments will be available throughout the workshop, but do bring lunch or you can visit one of our local cafes or shops to purchase.

31st May 10am-4pm
