Willow Hare Sculptures.... one of a series of popular Willow Animal Sculpture Workshops held this season with Phil Bradley at the Cycle Cafe. This is a rare opportunity to make your own life size model in willow... with Phil’s help you will over the day learn the various weaving, forming and sculpting techniques using willow to create your very own sculpture to be proud of. Many of us are inspired by hares...their alertness and quick movements, coupled with their ability to suddenly become totally motionless makes them perfect subjects for willow sculptures. Once caught they will sit happily in the garden, looking alarmed, as they do! Cumbrian Willow Master Phil Bradley organic grower and creator of all things willow. Phil is much in demand throughout the north of England and spends a lot of time at the Harlow Carr Horticultural College in Harrogate. Phil’s courses are always extremely popular, inspirational and relaxing. Our willow days tend to be very popular for those celebrating a birthday, there is always plenty of time to chat, come with friends and have a lovely day out together, enjoy the treat over lunch. All willow days incur a small extra charge payable directly to Phil for the willow used. This is variable and usually falls between £3 and £7 pppd. All courses take place in our lovely cosy barn, though we all make a beeline for the garden as soon as its warm enough in the spring. We are able to supply gift vouchers by email for any specific course, where there is availability. Alternatively, we can supply Open Quirky Workshop Vouchers to pop inside a card. NB: Please check website to confirm dates and times.
