Chaz Friend - Willow artist
For bespoke sculptures, commissions and workshops
"Chaz has been so helpful throughout our project to create a living willow tunnel in our Secret Garden at School. When the day came to plant it, the weather was horrendous - but Chaz remained cheerful and positive and completed the task. Some of the children were able to get outside and help between showers, and enjoyed learning about the willow they were planting.
Thank you so much for all your help Chaz."
