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.

At the end of your session you will have the opportunity to purchase willow, tools or books to help you master the trade at home should you wish.
