Our full day willow craft courses are priced from £80 and include all materials, lunch and refreshments. You will come away with something beautiful, strong, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal to you.
As well as taking home your own willow creation, you can also see the willow being grown and processed at first hand, taking in one of Somerset’s oldest crafts. Visitors are welcome to walk through the withy fields and enjoy the amazing variety of wildlife that the Somerset Levels has to offer.
On our Hurdles and Garden Screening course you will be shown how to stake up and weave a willow hurdle up to 6ft in length. The techniques taught can be taken home to adapt to your own requirements. Step by step instructions are given and crib sheets will be available.
“Just wanted to thank all for a thoroughly enjoyable hurdle making course on Saturday.”
Projects which can be undertaken with these techniques include; oil tank screening, raised beds and borders for flowers and vegetables and green compost bins. For the more ambitious, insitu fencing for larger fencing projects can also be explored.
