As with all exterior timber products this really depends on aftercare. All sculptures are treated on completion with a linseed oil spray (50% linseed and 50% Turpentine) in a ordinary hand held plant sprayer so it can be easily sprayed to protect the sculpture thoroughly. If a sculpture is to stay outdoors long term it is recommended that this process is redone a couple of times a year to maximise the longevity of the piece, that way with the correct care my willow sculptures can be enjoyed for many years.
I commissioned Katherine to weave a bee skep for my garden. It looks fanstastic and has now been colonised by bumble bees. It is a fanttastic addition to my garden. Ruth Stoneham, Bishops Steignton, Devon
I commissioned Katerine to come to our house and teach my friends how to weave life size sheep. We had a brilliant time and everyone went home with a new pet! Vanessa, Moreton Hampstead, Devon
