Traditional hand woven baskets and unique home-ware items using sustainably grown willow.


Online Willow Weaving

Join a 3 hour workshop via Zoom

All materials will be delivered to your home and you will be emailed a link to join the online Zoom class.

Perfect for you if you would like to try weaving, if you have a few hours to spare and if you would like to be part of a small safe group.

You just need access to Zoom and somewhere to soak willow rods e.g. bath, water butt, nearby stream or river (if using stream or river, secure the rods well, so they don’t float away)

During a 3 hour workshop, you will  weave your own Vase or plant pot and you will learn about the willow and  try a couple of different types of weaving methods.

Get in touch if you are interested in a live online workshop.
