Get back to nature this winter, brave the elements, and help create a fantastic living sculpture at Cannon Hall.

A team of adults is being sought to help willow artist Carole Beavis design and construct a new living willow play space within the park and gardens.

The three-day Living Willow course is from Monday, February 4, to Wednesday, February 6, from 11am to 4pm each day. Participants will learn the techniques and skills needed to create beautiful living willow domes and tunnels, to be enjoyed by many future visitors.

Volunteers must be aged over 18, and need to book in advance on 01226 790270.

Half term family willow workshops are also planned, on Sunday, February 10, and Monday, February 11, from noon to 4pm, with Carole Beavis and fellow willow artist Emma Parkins.
