About Wendy

Wendy lives in Carlton and is happily married to Adrian and has two teenage children, Hollie and Thomas. She enjoys cooking and outdoors and visiting Northumberland. Wendy set up Twigs & Sprigs in April 2017, having turned her hobby of willow weaving into a business. With 18 years teaching experience and her passion for art and all things nature, Twigs & Sprigs was born. Wendy’s willow workshops are fun, addictive and also therapeutic. You won’t want to put the willow down in anticipation of seeing your finished sculpture. Everyone’s sculpture is unique, each with its own character and personality. The workshops are fun and friendly with the satisfaction of producing your own willow sculpture to adorn your home or garden.
