Chickens…

Chicken day!  Sue, Sally and Celia all worked really hard and made beautiful birds to grace their gardens. 

Random weaving can feel a little thankless to begin with!  We started with a simple frame work made of willow hoops and free wove over the top of this. Tips of willow rods  were secured into the frame and woven in all directions. It was only after a couple of hours work their chickens really started emerging and firming up. After the addition of legs and head/neck their pieces really took shape. The afternoon saw everyone concentrating on oweaving over any gaps, firming up chicken thighs and faces!  

I can’t thank them enough for the amazing picnic they brought with them. It was a veritable feast that they produced from hampers and bags. I was really touched to be included.
