I was very excited to see that a Willow Cathedral has been built in Taunton. I’ve been reading about Marcel Kabler’s creations in Germany for years.
I was down in the valleys on Saturday building a willow dome for the opening of their community garden.
I recently completed a living willow sculpture of a man walking a dragon in Maesyderi Playing Field, Lampeter. Well the sign on the gate says “Dim Cwn – No Dogs”, so I didn’t think anyone would complain about a dragon! More photos at the Living Willow Wales website.
