Sculpt a life size chicken wire Hen or Duck for your Garden with Susan Nichols.
Every so often in summer, Sue travels from the furthest reaches of East Yorkshire to the Lake District to teach those west of the Pennines 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'll need 'neither food nor vet' , won't trash your garden and if you're lucky might even lay an egg! They can be sprayed with coloured car paint (i.e. from Halfords) or left as a lovely faded silver to last for years.
If the weather is fine we'll try to work in the garden, otherwise the course will take place up a flight of stairs in our new craft room offering plenty of space and is Covid secure.
PLEASE NOTE: Working with wire is tiring on the hands. Our wire courses are NOT recommended for anyone suffering from tiredness, muscle fatigue or arthritis of any form.
9.30am – 4pm
£85 Lunch included
Material Charges £12
Typically this course runs with around 10 students. Kindly note material charges payable to the tutor on the day are dependent upon wire prices at the time. Hens are £12 per bird .
Please bring: Susan brings the wire pre-cut and sectioned - in 'ready to use' pieces. Please remember to bring some flexible gardening gloves, some needle nosed pliers and a strong apron for your lap. Susan also has some pliers to borrow on the day.
