Sculpt a life size chicken wire Hen or Duck for your Garden with Susan Nichols.
*Susan is extremely busy at present and unable to confirm at this stage whether she can join us in Greystoke next year - usually August - for more of her excellent Wire Workshops.
We've opened a waiting list (BELOW) for all possibly interested students, using the Green ' Tell me When Bookable/ join waiting list to the right of where you would normally book, next to the August date. If we are able to arrange a date we will then notify all those on this list. Thank you.
Sue travels from the furthest reaches of East Yorkshire to the Lake District to teach students how to make her fabulous wire sculptures using her special pre-prepared sectioned galvanised chicken wire. Amazingly life like, solid and sturdy, these sculptures will last for years They can be sprayed with coloured car paint (ie from Halfords) or left as a lovely faded galvanised silver colour.
The course takes place in the first floor Swallow Barn Studio.
