About the course
Create your own willow reindeer to decorate your home this Christmas.
During the course, you'll be introduced to the basic tools and techniques of willow weaving. You'll be shown how to create the structure of a willow sculpture, and then how to random weave the body form and features of a reindeer. The sculpture will be approximately 4ft tall, and makes a great natural and unique decoration during the festive season.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners. This workshop is slightly strenuous, so a reasonable level of strength and mobility is needed.
About the venue
The workshop will take place at Coalport Village Hall, which is a lovely space on the banks of the River Severn at the bottom of the Ironbridge Gorge UNESCO World Heritage Site.
You're welcome to visit my studio at Maws Craft Centre after the workshop, which is just a five minute walk away from the Hall on the opposite bank of the river. Maws Craft Centre is a bustling creative hub with lots of artist studios and gallery spaces for you to have a wander around. You can also explore further afield, and go for a walk along the River Severn and take in the spectacular views of the historic Ironbridge Gorge.
