clip Willow Sculpture Day

May 05, 2015, 11:06:29 AM by BarbaraOsborne

How to create a Willow Sculpture

With Dave Gosling & Tony Davies - local sculptors

Willow structure of the type taught at the workshop ‘Impressive structures can be achieved in a day’ says Dave Gosling.

Dave and Tony will explain the story behind willow weaving and how it lead them into creating these amazing sculptures.

The day’s activity will start with an introduction followed by a talk and demonstration of techniques. Questions will be welcomed. Then everyone will be encouraged to start their sculpture – like riding a bike, the best way is to get into the saddle! They will then circulate around ensuring that everyone is happy and confident with their project. This format has worked really well for them in the past and ensures individual attention as well as a community feeling. The lunch break will take place at an appropriate time and then continue with the sculptures until the end of the day.

This is the perfect opportunity for the absolute beginner to sculpting and willow weaving, or to those who wish to improve their skill and benefit from the inspiration of two amazing professionals in a beautiful setting.

Please bring a pair of secateurs with you.

Price: £85.00 includes all materials (unless otherwise specified) our fabulous Creative Green lunch, drinks, homemade cakes and biscuits (the eggs are kindly contributed by the resident hens at Clue Hill Farm and honey from our bees).

clip Saunders and Newton Families of Brill (Buckinghamshire)

October 05, 2018, 12:47:01 AM by saunders
My Great, Great Grandfather - James Saunders, married Alice Newton, both of Brill Green, in Brill on the 05 Apr 1847.  Photograph of Alice Newton with my Great, Great Grandmother - Kate Penney Saunders (nee Newman).  Does anyone recognise the Saunders and Newton family names please?!  Or indeed know about the Saunders family much further back than the 1790's?  Thank you very much indeed.  I had great help from a genealogist, who thinks they may go as far back as Tudor times in Brill, Buckinghamshire.  Any help, contacts, ideas etc., greatly appreciated.

clip Brill Windmill Book - pre-order your copy!

March 16, 2017, 07:51:04 PM by Tim Andrew
If you love windmills, you surely will have visited Brill’s 17th century post mill up on Brill Common. One of the last few still standing in England. Photographer Tim Andrew has visited it hundreds of times over the last 25 years and is publishing a coffee table book full of fabulous photos captured when the light is glorious or there’s a community event that involves the Windmill.

Brill Windmill recently featured, not for the first time, in an episode of Midsomer Murders. Crime and Punishment's plot has the village's fictional name as Bleakridge, a hilltop place of intrigue and murder.

£1 from every book sold will be donated to the Brill Windmill maintenance fund.

The book is currently on Kickstarter.com, where you can pre-order it. The funding period ends on April 12th 2017, so head overd to kickstarter.com and search for “Brill Windmill Book” there. Or better still click on this link
