Creating your own Bird Willow Sculpture with artist Helen Colletta

We are delighted to announce the first of a series of creative workshops to be held at Branches Park. We begin by welcoming the super- talented willow artist, Helen Colletta to the Estate. 

Helen is a Suffolk-based willow sculpture artist who creates bespoke commissions using locally grown willow. Her sculptures take inspiration from her love of animals and the natural world. Helen has a wonderful ability of giving her creations their own expression and personality. 

During the workshop, you will learn under Helen’s expert guidance how to design, plan and create a willow bird sculpture of your own - taking inspiration from your surroundings at Branches Park Estate.

Your day will include a lavish grazing-style lunch, served from our newly renovated Pond Barn, taken al fresco should weather permit. 

Tickets are £125 p/p and include: welcome tea, coffee and treat, the creative workshop (including all materials), a grazing-style lunch and your very own willow creation to take home. 

To whet your appetite the day will run such as this……


Join us at the Breeze House for welcome teas, coffees and treats.
