Sponge Tree also deliver workshops to Glennaire Nursery, as part of the Baildon Children's Centre's outreach programme. Sponge Tree try to link in with each early years current theme. This theme was 'Water, water everywhere' and Sponge Tree came up with the idea of letting under fives create their own rain sticks form recycled materials. The results were fantastic and the children loved creating along side their parents or carers.
Sponge Tree and A Level students at Airevalley School created these wonderful willow balls. The balls will be used at the Saltaire Arts Trail on 28th + 29th May 2011. Some of the willow balls will be stuffed with wool ready for the public to felt a piece of wool jewellery. Along side the felting workshop there will be interactive demonstrations form the Bradford Guild of handweavers, spinners + dyers.

Come with me
Come with me - Oh, come + see!
There are blossoms on the cherry tree,
And though the oak tree is dark + bare,
A pair of robins are nesting there;
And any minute the willows mean
To burst out in leaf-their tips are green
So come along Oh, come with me-
It’s spring again + there’s lots to see!
