Our full day willow craft courses start at £80. Our prices include all materials and equipment, lunch and refreshments throughout the day. Attendees leave with something beautiful, strong, environmentally-friendly and above all, very personal.

As well as taking home your own willow creation, there will also be an opportunity to see how willow is grown and processed on our Somerset farm. Visitors are welcome to walk through our withy fields and enjoy the amazing sights and sounds that the Somerset Levels has to offer.

We offer a huge range of basketry courses suitable for everyone from complete beginners to highly experienced weavers. As a beginner you should expect to take home a round platter or fruit bowl. You need no previous experience to be able to weave your first basket!
