Wonderful willow!

I love working with willow -  Especially early in the year, about a month after it has been cut. The willow rods are really flexible then, without the need for soaking, and the colours are vibrant and glowing.

The Welsh climate means that it is often far too cold to sit still, weaving away early in the year ...the Big Barn, see under 'Courses', however provides space, shelter and now (God said 'Let Newton be' and there was light) electricity too!

The courses will start again in March 2023, meanwhile it's Decoration time;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Willow, reed and dogwood decorations - prices start at £1.50, to £4.50 per item, get in touch if you would like to buy any!

 

Below is a celebration of willow in pictures! From functional pieces to flights of fancy - from beginners basket making classes to my finished articles for sale - growing willow, cut willow, willow products - just willow!!
