CANCELLED Milk Bottle Bird Garden Sculpture with Lucy Dean


Friday 3rd July 2020 | 9:30am - 2:00pm

CANCELLED  Milk Bottle Bird Garden Sculpture with Lucy Dean


Learn how to make stunning birds out of old plastic milk bottles, which we will attach to a willow and bamboo structure that you will also

make. We will use recycled materials to decorate our sculptures, which when finished can be mounted on a stake or hung from a branch in your garden.


Please bring along 4 or 5 “2 pint” plastic milk bottles and any colourful carrier bags you would like to repurpose.

All the other materials will be provided

We will do weaving, painting, willow construction as well as making the birds.

£55 cost

Please contact Lucy Dean  for more information and to book the sessions. Mobile 07538 109417  or email


Lucy Dean: Is a mixed media artist with a background in theatre design and has been teaching art for over 30 years. Her own recent artwork has been inspired by bird life in particular, but also enjoys making installations in gardens, and is creating more work going back to her more theatrical roots.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
