Craft Skills: How to Build a Wickerman
burning wickerman he and his coven had built, I asked him how it was done.
He very kindly sent me instructions along with a series of photos showing the step-by-step process.
Pat explained: "Firstly make a slight frame. A few nails and a saw will do this. From then on it's collecting hazel/willow withies, or honeysuckle vine, and bending into the framework to form the basic human shape, then interweaving and tying (garden wire is sufficient), until the full form is created."
The photo at the top shows a completed Wickerman, the rest show various stages in the process.
