Willow is a versatile material to work with for all ages. Large structures can be created quickly and are lightweight; so small people can carry large puppets ! Combined with tissue paper and glue the possibilities for willow sculpture are endless.
I find that when people immerse themselves in the dynamics of 3D willow construction any other thoughts tend to be put aside for the day. The individuals within the team start to bring the parts together and soon the greater structure begins to appear, eyes widen and everyone is focused. Tissue paper and colours flow into designs and form. The group stands back with smiles of admiration and pride; it is such a lot of fun and gives the team a real sense of achievement. It also shows them the creative potential they hold and that they can create something magnificent if they work together.
