Gruffalo in Willow

This photo of me and the Gruffalo tells only a small part of the willow sculpture project we carried out.

Alongside Gruffalo, the primary school children also sculpted the snake, mouse and other characters from the well known children's book by Julia Donaldson.

The project was completed in a North East school in Teesside and these larger than life characters encourage the children to role-play when outside, developing their story telling and literacy skills. 

Children love to get involved making their story characters, it encourages team work and learning about materials in the outdoors. Please contact us to find out more about our children's fiction-based sculpture.

Working with willow

Our willow sculptures typically depict characters from children's books or films such as The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Brum car TV series. Alternatively we recreate themes from local history or nature such as a coal miner or woodland birds.
