Try something new to brighten up the dark months of winter.

For groups of 4-8 one off courses can be arranged, please give me a call if you’d like to know more.

All courses are full for the moment. Please add your name to my mailing list if you’d like to be informed when there are more planned.

If anyone is interested in a day making small birds in wire and willow please email me, I have been experimenting and think it might be fun to share!


“We had the best time, ever. It was great to benefit from your artistic vision, learn something new and be pushed out of our comfort zone! We appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and supportive teaching. Lunch was delicious.”

Barbara and Michael

“Many thanks for the warm welcome and a really inspirational day that was also great fun! We left with a whole armoury of new skills and ideas that we can’t wait to put into practice. Your guidance and tutoring was pitched exactly right for us both, so we gained confidence as we worked. The work that we completed is now taking pride of place in our garden - we love these unique pieces because we made them!”

Other teaching

Zantium Studios

I will be returning to the lovely Zantium Studios this spring to teach our very popular Willow Garden Structures course in April 23 and 24th and June 9th and 10th 2016. This year we are offering the chance to make willow plant supports and explore hedgerow baskets, a beautiful way of using a variety of materials gathered from the hedegrow…or your own garden. If you fancy giving yourself a real treat, Alison and Peter have a holiday cottage available and take the opportunity to explore the beautiful Derbyshire countryside! Please follow this link to find out more.

Buckingham Summer School

If you fancy a real opportunity to immerse yourself in willow for 3 days, I will be teaching a willow sculpture course at this summer school on August 2nd -4th. I haven’t taught here before but it really does sound lovely, should be fun! For more details please follow the link or call me.
