This is an unique opportunity to watch Tarja Heikkila from Finland demonstrating her fascinating craft. Tarja will be showing how she uses birch twigs and iron wire to make birds as in the topic of her latest book ‘Birch Twig Birds’. Click here for the link.
Nothing about Tarja’s craft shouts or boasts to me, but looks authentic and characterful. Is that just because I too was brought up amongst birch trees? I think you will see the beauty just the same…
Tarja has made hundreds of samples of birch twig sculptures, vessels and wreaths for the purpose of sharing her passion in her three books and numerous exhibitions. This workshop is a treat for anyone who is interested in natural and sustainable crafts made with immense amount of passion, dedication and skill.
You too will get a chance to have a go and make your bird with help from me and Tarja. You will go home with a totally original creation of your own.
