Living Willow Sculpture (Paperback)Jon Warnes (author)
- Not available
Children will enjoy making and playing in wigwams, domes and tunnels. More advanced projects, suitable for adults, include fences, chairs and arbours.
Jon Warnes discusses the tools you need, planting the willow, joining, grafting and weaving in detail, and includes other makers' work in different styles to inspire you to create your own designs. Willow is an exciting material to work with. It is adaptable, easy to work with, and it will grow in a range of soils. Its quick growth gives almost immediate results and, as there is a great variety of leaf shape and stem colour, structures look attractive throughout the year.

Jon Warnes describes the process of making a range of living willow structures and shapes, using diagrams, photographs and clear instructions. Many of the ideas are particularly relevant to schools, although perhaps more detail would be needed for the complete beginner leading a project with a class. The book recommends visiting some places for inspiration (be warned that it includes the Earth Centre in Doncaster which is now closed). The list of suppliers given on the Search Press website is up to date and potentially invaluable.* Start *
