As with any structure, our sculptures are formed using basic shapes that are then woven together to form a larger piece.
A popular shape used in much of our work is a ring.
In this video, Ruth demonstrates how straight forward the technique is in making a willow ring.
A ring forms the basis of many items made from willow such as wreaths, spheres or animal based structures.
Take a look, see how easy it is for yourself and don't be afraid to give it a go!
We can deliver our workshops either indoors or outdoors and can offer a range services that allow participants to learn ancient skills in a modern setting. In 2013 Sylvan Skills were awarded the Walmsley Bursary by the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers and continue to utilise skills gained from that learning.
