What you will do

2.5 hour workshop

Evening

This willow weaving course introduces you to creating and making large scale willow sculpture in a group. We start with an informal introduction. We will look at willow in its dry and wet state and begin to handle and learn techniques to manipulate it. We will then immerse ourselves into the wonderful rhythm of weaving. At Creative nature HQ, we differ from other courses in that we create the artwork to be donated to community groups and schools. This allows us to work on a scale that most homes cannot accommodate. You take home great memories and new skills. There is an option to develop your own work or an individual project and take it home with you at a small additional cost. Do get in touch if you have a specific project in mind and we can explain the additional cost of the willow. Stephen, your tutor, has been working with willow for over 30 years and trained as a sculptor and forest school teacher.

As a total novice, I did not know what to expect but was curious about willow weaving. Stephen was very personable and we had good chats while we were working. He showed me a range of willow rods and how they could be used and by the end of the afternoon we had produced a marvellous willow sculpture. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try out sculptural willow weaving. The venue is set amidst an industrial area right on the Thames, so is very atmospheric.

About your host, Creative nature HQ

Creative nature HQ is a collective of artists, makers and designers who believe that we are all inherently creative. It is their job as teachers to nurture and reveal these qualities in every one we teach. Creative nature HQ have defined five disciplines that encompass all the skills of our group: to draw, carve, build, weave and cast.

You can access these workshops in different studios around south London. Their main location is Creative Nature HQ , East Greenwich, that specialises in wood carving, weaving and construction on a monumental scale. We love to teach, to give people the confidence to use tools and with that a confidence grows and a world of making opens up before them.

Stephen Stockbridge is the director of Creative nature HQ, from this tranquil making space Stephen shares his passion for making with natural materials. Slowing down, being in the moment and fully engaged with what you are doing is the foundation of everything that happens here.

Come join the club, learn, live and make! Looking forward to meeting you.
