Living Willow Dinosaur SculptureClick for more info

Living willow projects, sculptures and arbours take place between January and March each year. Please contact us by the September before you wish to do your project to get booked in!

More than 50 year 3 pupils at Lainesmead Primary School in Swindon worked with Julieann in February 2008  on a 3m x 6m living willow dinosaur which they had designed during workshops before Christmas.

"Children, teachers,parents and governors have all been talking about how positive the experience was. One parent said; " I usually can't get my son to school, but he was up and dressed before anyone else when he knew he was going to be working on the dinosaur. He just loves working with his hands and he was in his element working outside.
 
Your experience provides something that SATs results can't measure.You help children appreciate nature, see art in a different light and give them an experience where they can't experience failure and learn about how they fit into a team."

Lainesmead Primary School, Swindon
