Sculpt your own life size 'Goose' in wire for your Garden with Sue Nichols.
In August 2021 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.
