Description

These courses are part of Dillington Discoveries Summer week.

Join local Somerset artist Jo Sadler of ‘Forged n Willow’ to make an animal sculpture. Jo will guide you through each step to create your animal for your home or garden using locally grown willow from the Somerset levels.  Running from Monday to Thursday you can book for the whole duration or individual days.

Wear older clothes as it can get grubby, bring your own secateurs if you like, and plenty of enthusiasm!

Tutor information

Jo Sadler has been weaving with willow for over four years now and makes a wide variety of sculptures from Chickens to Deer, Arches for Weddings, bespoke commissions and runs courses to make sculpture. She is a supplier to the National Trust and made Barrington Court a gaggle of geese for their Easter trail as well as creating winter displays for last two years in the grounds. She has several deer displayed at Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens which appeared at Dillington House last Christmas pulling the sleigh!  She is currently about to open a unit at Broadwindsor Craft Centre where she will also run future courses and sell sculptures.  Her passion for weaving is never ending and she really appreciated going on a course which just opened the door to a complete new creative world. She is learning to weld so she can expand into metal sculpture and hopes to use more materials too.
