Beatherder 2017 Willow Sculptures

We returned to Beatherder this weekend.




The weather is fine the outlook is good the beat goes on.With two Big Girrrl sculptures to put up and yes they had a bit of a hair doo and a dust down before planting in the field. let the party begin and in Lancashire they do know a thing or two about partaying.

Giant Willow Badger

Returning from Jersey and it was straight on to the rebuild of the Giant Badger at the Welsh Wildlife Centre. Musgrove Willows for their kind donation of Steamed Willow. The other willows came from the Wildlife Park itself and mostly from the pruning of the Butterfly Maze earlier in the year. Next winter we will top the weaving up with more stuff from the Maze and make the weave a lot more dense.



What  sorry state this poor creature was in. But loved by lots of small children. The willows where now so fragile it seemed pointless to keep them so we began at the rear where the full effect of the weather had its worst effect from there we moved forwards replacing everything from the framework to the top weave layer. So much help from friends, family and the amazing Wildlife Park Volunteers making it happen so much more quickly. Thanks too to Musgrove Willows for their kind donation of Steamed Willow. The other willows came from the Wildlife Park itself and mostly from the pruning of the Butterfly Maze earlier in the year. Next winter we will top the weaving up with more stuff from the Maze and make the weave a lot more dense.
