Sculptures and living willow

Willow is a fabulous material for making sculptures using mainly brown willow which has to be soaked and woven round a willow or mild steal armature.

Living willow is planted in the dormant season from freshly cut willow. Each rod is then stuck into the ground and all sorts of domes and living fences can be created. Come the spring it bursts into live and side shoots start to grow.
