willow structures and sculptures are fun to make and fascinating
to watch grow.
The beauty of willow is in its suppleness, the ability to be bent
and twisted into many shapes. Please take a look at the photo gallery
to see what others have done.
The success of a living
willow sculpture depends on a combination of good design, site preparation, careful planting and correct maintenance of willow structures.
Sculptures are dynamic, changing with the seasons and years. They
require a small amount of management if they are to keep their shape.
Schoolchildren love willow sculpture work (their imagination seems
to have no bounds!) and projects involving a whole class or school
have been very successful. Check the schools page to see a list
of artists that work with schools on willow projects.
