Demonstrations and Talks

 

Let me explain to children the processes I go through in making a piece a work from ideas to drawings and models before the full scale piece is created.  

Workshop Activities

 

Explore the techniques of making  by creating individual pieces made from willow

Designing and making

 

Once the basic techniques are grasped, design, make and evaluate a willow creation.  

Extended Development

 

Book 6 sessions through the year working with targetted groups of pupils developing their understanding and skills in a deeper way.  

Teacher CPD

 

INSET days or staff meeting sessions for staff to learn willow techniques and applications, which can then be used in a range of curriculum areas, making good use of possible onsite resources.

(see "Teaching Teachers" tab for more details)

Art in the Community

 

Work through some of the above processes to produce a willow sculpture to be sited in a local public space, supporting local interests.
