Anthony Hammond’s willow craft

Many of us will know Anthony Hammond from his regular appearances at the Draycott Summer Fayre, where he puts on displays of carving.  He creates wood-sculptures with a chainsaw!
Anthony is a local lad, raised in Cresswell – where his mum and dad still live.

He does a lot of workshops too as well as his carving, but usually he travels far and wide to put them on.  Now, for once, he is doing a couple locally.
They are for children, later this month, and can be booked right now.

Willow craft

As well as doing wood-carving, Anthony specialises in willow craft, so it’s a real treat to be able to learn something from him.

The willow-craft sessions with Anthony take place on Tuesday 29th October (9:30-12:30) and  Thursday 31st October (9:30-12:30) – right in the middle of half-term.
He’s holding them at Blythe Bridge Library as part of the so-called ‘Hub Club’ there.  They will cost £3 per person.
The Hub Club usually caters for children 6-12 years old, but parents (and grandparents and guardians) can attend these sessions too.

Booking is essential, so phone the library on 296401 to reserve places.
