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.

creating a living willow fence

Almost any type of willow, we grow over twenty varieties on our coppice in Gloucestershire, can be used for creating sculptures but the most popular is Salix viminalis (osier) for it's long straight pliable growth. Other varieties can be added to the design to create a variety of colours or for finer work. 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.
