Willow Works

It all started when June was asked to take on the commission to create willow golfers for the 2014 Ryder Cup.

June trained at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art where she graduated in Drawing & Painting and was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Travelling Scholarship for painting.

She now runs The Works, a multi-faceted arts company offering artistic services, from giant murals to facepainting and graphic design.

In great demand for all sorts of creative workshops, June is mainly a community artist and specialises in doing things on a grand scale.

She had dabbled with willow before but the Ryder Cup project was a much bigger proposition.

Lynn is a photographer, who somehow ended up being one of June’s not so glamorous assistants for the huge undertaking.

Here’s what they say about Willow Works: “We discovered we rather enjoyed working with willow and each other, so when the golfers project finished we carried on – a hairy Highland Coo just had to be made from this natural material!

“Other sculptures followed, and we have since worked on a variety of willow projects – including more coos, deer, birds and Scottie dogs- and are about to embark upon a plough horse.

“Some of our work can be seen on the Bliss Art Trail, in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Others feature in arTay and we will be collaborating with the Black Watch Museum later this year on a poppy project and winter workshops.

“We are kept very busy with the willow and our other work but love what we do and are always open to ideas for willow sculptures and workshops.”
