Sculpt a life size chicken wire Hen for your Garden with Susan Nichols.

Every so often in August, Susan travels over to the Lake District to teach those west of the Pennines how to make her fabulous sculptures using her special preprepared sectioned galvanised chicken wire. These wonderful sculptures are amazingly life like, solid and sturdy. They will last for years in your garden and can be sprayed with coloured paint from Halfords or left as a lovely faded silver last for years.  If the weather is fine we sometimes work in the garden.

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is very tiring on the hands and is not recommended for those who suffer from muscle fatigue or arthritis of any form.

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 precut 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 (we have some you can borrow if you don’t have one).
