During this course you will be introduced to weaving with willow to create your very own Allium Sculpture to take home with you.
You will be using freshly soaked Black Maul willow and applying it in a spherical weaving pattern in the style of Rachel Carter's own sculptural work. Once finished it will be attached onto a steel rod to complete the Allium sculpture.
The workshop takes place within Rachel's own studio on the Welbeck Estate, whilst there why not visit the Limehouse Cafe for lunch, look around the Harley gallery and perhaps pop in the farm shop and treat yourself to delicious foods grown or prepared on the estate.
All tools and materials will be provided, just bring a packed lunch.
When & Where
Rachel Carter designs and creates sculptural pieces for the garden or landscape setting using mild steel and woven willow. Trained at The University of Derby in Applied Arts & Design, she mixes her love of art and design, with her passion for the environment.
Inspiration for her work comes from the plants within her own garden and trips to botanical gardens and the English countryside. Nature creates beautiful fluid shapes and this finds its way into the shapes that she creates with willow, bronze and copper. Rachel's studio is based on the Ducal Estate of Welbeck.
