 Sculpt your own life size 'Goose' in wire for your Garden with Sue Nichols.

In August 2020 Sue will travel from her studio in 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 can be sprayed with coloured car paint (ie from Halfords)  or left to pale into a natural faded silver.

If the weather is fine we'll try to work in the garden, otherwise the course may take place up a flight of stairs in our new craft room.

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. This Goose day is a particularly long course and is the most challenging of all due to the size of the bird.

Dates for this course - see the table below to book:

Wire Geese Thurs 6th August 2020           (Also Wire Hens Friday 7th August and Wire Owls Sat 8th Aug 2020 ....please see separate course entries for info)

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. Geese are £15.

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 (the last two we can lend if you don’t have one).
