PEREGRINI LINDISFARNE WILLOW SCULPTURE WORKSHOPS Over half of the willow sculptures for the Lindisfarne Nature Trail have now been created by Anna Turnbull and volunteers. The sculptures - inspired by local fauna and flora and larger-than-life - look marvellous and site visits have made with staff from the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, the Northumberland Coast AONB and the National Trust to fine tune the perfect location for each sculpture. The sculpture trail will be launched in the summer. This art project is part of the larger Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership scheme, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. We are looking for volunteers to assist in the creation of the last sculptures. Can you help? Subjects include Brent Geese in flight, nesting swallows and an Arctic Tern. On Saturday 13th of May, the workshop will be held at the Crossman Hall, Holy Island (morning session 09:30 - 12 noon; afternoon session 12.45 - 3pm). The last session will be at Lucker Village Hall on Saturday 3rd of June. Running alongside the willow sculpture workshops in both May and June, there'll also be a simple basketry class. On the 13th of May, Alan Winlow will be running a workshop making an elongated mantelpiece basket (09.30am to 3pm) and on the 3rd of June, the Lucker Basketry Group will run a workshop on how to make a Catalan platter basket. If you would like to book on any of these FREE workshops, please email Sarah Winlow -
