Living Willow Butterfly Maze, Teifi Marshes, Cilgerran.

I have just begun a living willow installation at The Wildlife Park, Teifi Marshes, in Cilgerran, Cardigan, West Wales.www.welshwildlife.org
Designed as an area for children to run around it measures approx 26m x 30m.  It takes the shape of a butterfly and will include domes, tunnels and spiralling fences to encourage play.
The perimeter measures approx 110m and will be  planted with a willow podge fence...this week. Each willow is planted to a depth of about 30cm which will  keep the rod in the ground and also allow enough moisture to feed it and get established. The space between each plant is 25cm...so lots to do before Solstice.
Come along and see it progress... always happy to stop and chat.
We will have some fast growing super willows arriving tomorrow so could do with a bit of muscle power.
You are all just so wellcome. Volunteer days Tuesday and Thursday.

"Crackers" Square Pegs Show


Just to let you know I am exhibiting with Square Pegs at the Corn Exchange Gallery in the Guildhall in Cardigan all week until 15th December.  Square Pegs are a group of artists and craftspeople living and working in West Wales. If you are unfamiliar with their shows then I do recomend you give them a visit. This one is called "Crackers" and is full of quirky and beautiful creations suitably seasonal.  Lots of affordable items too, from gift ideas for your someone special, to  decorations  for your tree. It's a little treasure box. Promise.
