Child weaved sculptures
I will have worked with up to 100 children throughout the day , making an individual willow item.
This is likely to cost in the region of £400 - £600 (however depends on the number of children in the class and the items made)

What happens on a sculptural day?
I work with small groups of children, weaving into a metal armature that I have already created for them. (NB smaller numbers of children get to participate as only so many can get at the structure at once)
When the children finish I spend some time tidying the structure before I leave.
NB - additional costs are incurred for the metal armature making. Simple structures (leaf / heart/ fish) cost approximately £250
