Coloured Fan Birds

For the ‘Working Woodlands’ exhibition at Farfield Mill in Sebergh last month I made some fan birds and, to make them a bit more special, I tried out an idea to add colour to the wings. I think the results are pretty nice.

The birds in the exhibition’s shop all sold out but, since these were on display, I still have them available £12+£5p&p. You can order using the order form.

If you’d like to learn how to make fan birds yourself, there are still some places on my course in Cumbria at the end of the month:
