iv) Angela’s workshop – Clayhill Arts,Charlynch Lane, Bridgwater TA5 2PH

Organic forms using soft natural materials - This is a workshop encouraging you to explore natural forms, weaving organic materials found in the landscape. We will begin with a short walk exploring the grounds of this wonderful venue to collect a few site-special materials (for example grasses, sedge leaves, twigs, cones…) these will complement the willow and other materials already provided. You will then weave, plait or stitch these into bowl-like, leaf-like or more abstract forms (see below for ideas).

This will be a fun and experimental workshop. Participants choosing to do a half day workshop will make a small piece whereas anyone signing up for the day-long option will be able to make a larger piece as well as perfect their technique.
