BROADRAKE – Willow Curlews

Broadrake Bunkbarn, Chapel-le-dale
Ingleton, North Yorkshire LA6 3AX

One day sculptural willow weaving workshops in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with lovely views of Ingleborough, Whernside and Ribblehead.

The sculptural workshops are very popular; the curlew is is a lovely iconic Yorkshire Dales bird that breeds in neighbouring fields around Broadrake and often flies over our site with it’s lovely evocative call. The curlews look great in the garden set among tall grasses and meadow flowers or equally at home inside, maybe decorated with mini LED lights.

Tutor Phil Bradley’s relaxed, gentle teaching style will guide the group through all the processes to make sure that everyone masters the basic skills for each stage of the willow sculpture starting with the frames which are then filled with random weave. The final details are added in stages to bring each sculpture to life and give each one their own unique character.
