Make a Stag’s Head in Chicken Wire – 1 day

Make a Stag’s Head in Chicken Wire – 1 day


In this one day workshop you'll learn how to sculpt a chicken wire taxidermy style stag head with wire or twig antlers. With lots of help and guidance, and using simple techniques, you'll make a sculpture that's suitable for display in the garden or indoors. Starting with a wire template and adding shape layer by layer you'll build your own head.

Well-known wire sculptor, Chris Moss, uses a variety of metal materials, including new and recycled wire and mesh, to create stunning sculptures particularly wild and domestic animals and birds. Chris has a love of nature and all her work reflects a detailed study of the anatomy and character of her subjects. Chris works on commissions and exhibits her work across the UK.

Course will run from 10am to approx 4pm each day.
The workshop will take place in our purpose built creative space overlooking Coniston Water and the Old Man of Coniston.
