Children learn to weave with willow

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS learned to weave willow and made sculptures to decorated a school garden.

Artist Sue Kirk visited Laxton Junior School to teach Year 6 pupils the skill of willow weaving.

Each child made a dragonfly to be displayed in the school garden.

Head of art at the school Sarah Ashby organised the visit. She said “There is something very special about outdoor sculpture.

“The children were fascinated by this ancient craft and only the dropping of a leaf could be heard as they worked.

“They created a flight of beautiful dragonflies that are now prevalent in the school grounds.

“Each creature is unique, some tall, some small, some long and some thin.”
