Organic forms using soft natural materials
This is an experimental workshop encouraging you to explore natural materials and forms. 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.

Full day with either Angela or Fiona OR half a day with each artist £60 to include materials, light lunch & refreshments
Half day with either Angela or Fiona £30, includes materials and refreshments
Maximum 10 places per workshop
