Our full day willow craft courses are priced from £75 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.
We have a wide range of Basketry courses for all abilities ranging from beginners to masterclasses. As a beginner you should expect to take home a round platter or fruit bowl. You need no previous experience to be able to achieve your first basket.
Our tutors are some of the most experienced willow weavers in the UK. They will ensure you have the very best instruction and help throughout your time with us at Musgrove Willows. They will teach you how to use the most suitable tools and willow weaving techniques to achieve the best results.
New for 2016 the Zarzo Baskets course will teach you how to produce baskets & platters which have a contemporary feel to them. Weave the base, sides & handles all in one. This is an easy to produce platter/basket with stunning results. A good starter basket for beginners & an unusual basket to add to the repertoire of those with more experience. Saturday will focus on platters & the round form, the Sunday course will focus on square & rectangular forms. Book both for the full Zarzo experience!
