I offer day or evening workshops for adults and children making simple willow projects. These provide an introduction to working with natural materials. Example work shops include plant supports, Danish baskets, harvest corn dollies, alternative hen nights etc.  I can also tailor workshops to your requirements.


I demonstrate willow and straw craftwork   at fetes and craft events, alongside selling my work and talking to the public about the craft.  I can also offer ad hoc drop-in sessions for children who can make small woven objects, such as mini-hurdles or corn dollies, which they can take home with them.

What I offer…


I provide interactive talks about willow work and straw craft and their heritage, social and cultural history, environmental impact and sustainability, and modern uses of willow. These can also include small willow or straw projects to give people a taster of working with these materials.

huge thank you for the fantastic evening you gave us at Brownies last night, the girls absolutely loved it, and so did us leaders. It was great to see the photos of how and where the willow is grown, and made for a really educational evening too.”
