Throughout the year, Musgrove Willows run a range of willow weaving courses. These courses take place at our centre in Westonzoyland, Somerset.
Willow craft courses start at just £40 for a half day course. The price includes all materials, a delicious lunch and refreshments. Attendees come away with something beautiful, strong, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal.

Refreshments & Lunch
Refreshments are available throughout the day. A delicious home-made lunch is also provided. (Please advise us of any special dietary requirements, allergies or disabilities when booking.)
Some of our courses are held outdoors and others in work sheds. Depending on the course, you may be using steamed or wet willow rods. Please wear appropriate clothing.
If the course you wish to book is full, please let us know. We will endeavour to run another course if we can.
Get a group of family and friends together and take a course together. Groups of 6 and above can be accommodated.
6 or more students are needed to make a course viable, so we reserve the right to cancel or change the course date if necessary. Refunds or credit notes will be given if alternative dates are unsuitable.
