Wendy Bristow set up Twigs & Sprigs in April 2017, having turned her hobby of willow weaving into a business.
With 20 years teaching experience and her passion for art and all things nature, Twigs & Sprigs was born. Wendy has produced large scale willow commissions for York Minster in 2018 and 2019, Leeds City Council, Lincolnshire Council and Farmer Copley’s. As well as running workshops for adults and children, she also works with schools, craft groups and WI’s.
During the pandemic, Wendy adapted her business, revamped her website and set up a shop page. She worked on several private commissions as well as weaving people’s pets, created weaving kits and having the time to work on new ideas.
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.
