Willowcraft and Woodlands creates sculptures

Willow and native woodland materials provide endless inspiration and possibilities for sculpture projects. We design and create beautiful and unique sculptures according to your brief and we pride ourselves on our ability to give ‘legs’ to your imagination! Our design and consultation processes are friendly and down to earth. Willowcraft and Woodlands are also pleased to assist in the design and creation of sculptures as a group activity within your school, community or workplace and have many years’ experience of working with people of all ages and abilities. Our sculpture projects to date have included large and fantastical creatures, figurative and representational objects, and everything in between. Commissioned by individuals, schools, county councils and stately homes you will see them on roundabouts, in play areas and town centres.

Rhino

Leavers from Abberley Hall school celebrated the end of their exams by embarking on an exciting willow weaving project. Pupils, guided by Paul and Steph and assisted by some of their teachers, created a life size charging white rhino sculpture. The piece was designed as a tribute to their retiring headmaster and to celebrate the schools' sponsorship of a pair of African white rhinos. Read more about our work with schools.

Mother Elephant

This sculpture was created with children aged 4-11 from Dickens Heath Primary School in Solihull. As part of their 'Africa' week, the pupils chose the character of Elmer the Elephant as their inspiration. It was completed, along with the crocodile sculpture, over 3 days in school.
