Willow in Schools
Many schools across the UK have installed willow sculptures as
a way of increasing the value of their school grounds for pupils
and for use in teaching the National Curriculum.
Children love creating willow sculptures as they can use their
imagination while learning about shapes, numbers and nature. Willow
sculptures are not just interesting to install they also grow from
early spring to late autumn.
General maintenance and weaving new growth back into the structure
can keep pupils involved throughout the year.
Willow Igloo for Primary School
There are a number of artists around the country, that specialise
in creating sculptures using natural materials, who run courses
for teachers and workshops for children in creating willow sculptures.

We have recently undertaken a project, in conjunction with The
Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, at a local Primary School to create
a living willow igloo. You
can see pictures of the willow project by clicking here.
JPR Environmental supplies quality willow to artists working
with schools to create sculptures.
