內容簡介 Children will enjoy making and playing in wigwams, domes and tunnels. More advanced projects, suitable for adults, include fences, chairs and arbours. Jon Warnes discusses the tools you need, planting the willow, joining, grafting and weaving in detail, and includes other makers' work in different styles to inspire you to create your own designs. Willow is an exciting material to work with. It is adaptable, easy to work with, and it will grow in a range of soils. Its quick growth gives almost immediate results and, as there is a great variety of leaf shape and stem colour, structures look attractive throughout the year. Jon Warnes shows how to build a wonderful selection of decorative, functional and fun objects for the garden.
作者介紹 Jon Warnes developed a keen interest in working with wood after volunteering to do some coppicing work in the early nineties. Since then he has developed his woodland craft skills and he now runs regular rustic furniture courses at the Centre of Alternative Technology in Mid Wales, the the Green Wood Trust in Shropshire. He also runs living willow courses which include demonstrations on how to make living willow chairs.
