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
