Create your own willow artwork for your home or garden this Christmas with local willow artist and sculptor, Vik Westaway.

Victoria has created sculptures for both RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower shows, exhibited her work nationally and for commissions, and loves sharing her skills by running fun willow workshops across the country.

In this full day workshop you will learn how to create a willow reindeer sculpture using a steel armature and sustainable willow grown on the Somerset Levels. Victoria will bring all the materials and tools you need, and by the end of the day you will have woven a beautiful festive Reindeer to grace your garden this Christmas.

The workshop is for adults and takes place in the Learning Lab. Spaces limited to 5 people max.
