Wire Hens & Ducks 'Quirky Workshop' Chris Moss at Greystoke


Sculpt a life size wire Hen or Duck for your Garden with Chris Moss

Spend a day with talented wire sculpture artist, Chris Moss and learn how to create one of these fabulous Ducks or Hens (or maybe even a Pheasant) out of chicken wire. Under Chris's expert guidance you can add your own character and attitude whilst creating your finished life sized sculpture. These birds will last for years in or out, will need 'neither food nor vet' and won't trash your garden. Be kind & they might even lay you an egg! You could spray even them with coloured car paint (ie from Halfords), weave in red highlights for combs or leave as a lovely faded silver to last for years.

If the weather is fine we'll try to work in the garden, otherwise the course may take place up a flight of stairs in our new craft room.

PLEASE NOTE: Working with wire is tiring on the hands. Our wire courses are NOT recommended for anyone suffering from tiredness, muscle fatigue or arthritis of any form.
