Make a reindeer sculpture to display outside your home during the festive season.
This course will teach you how to create the structure of a willow sculpture. You will then build up the willow to create a willow reindeer.
You will have a wonderful day in a beautiful setting learning an ancient craft.
This course is £65 payable by Paypal, bank transfer or by cheque. The course will be held between 10:00am and 4:00pm in Nantgarw China Works Museum, Cardiff.
All materials and tools are provided and you take home everything you make. Tea, coffee and cake are provided throughout the day but please bring a packed lunch.
Sarah Hatton, the course tutor, has been willow weaving since 2008. She has been involved in many large scale projects, most recently producing 70 gift baskets for the World Leaders attending the NATO Summit in Newport. Sarah was awarded the Craft Showcase Award 2015 at Made by Hand, Cardiff. She grows her own willow in Caerphilly which gives her a yearlong sustainable source of willow.
Guided by your tutor Sarah she will take you through the course step by step and will make sure that you go home with something you are proud of.
Coronavirus update 24/09/2020
The area where I live and run the courses are currently on local lockdown. I have however been advised by my Member of Senedd that as my courses are educational services that as long as I put social distancing and hand washing in place and we wear face masks then my courses can go ahead.
If you are in a vunerable or at risk category and you are concerned about mixing with people from other area’s I advise you not to book on a course.
Though these are difficult times for all of us I will try to help and accommodate you as best I can with concerns but abusive behaviour will not be tolerated.
If the Welsh Government says that educational services cannot continue the course will be cancelled. Everyone booked onto the course will be given a refund in full.
If you are unable to attend a course please let us know as soon as possible.
- If a cancellation is made 28 days or more before the course start date then a full refund will be given.
- If a cancellation is made between 28 days and 14 days before the course start date and we are able to allocate your place to another student, then a £30 refund will be given. In the event that we are unable to allocate your place to another student, no refund will be given.
- If a cancellation is made less than 14 days before the course start date then no refund will be given.
