Sculpture trail

I spent one week working with pupils creating willow art work as well as working in the small copse in the school grounds.  The projects involved hands on coppicing, making living hazel arches, willow flowers, large willow spiders and large willow fish. 

During a follow up week I helped on the project building a timber outdoor classroom, the pupils were involved with every aspect of the work: using a shave horse to make oak pegs, de barking chestnut poles, nailing cedar shingles, measuring & sawing, etc…
