Willow Craft

Summer term courses will be available to book from Tuesday 8 March

We have some amazing and creative willow work classes here.

You can see the starting venue/format for each course listed below. Please note: we reserve the right to change the format of the course, in term, should safety advice change.


If you are interested in joining a Willow Craft course, please make sure you enrol by the deadline (usually a week before the course takes place) as enough willow needs to be soaked for several days before the course.

Please note:  All willow craft courses have limited participants, in order to ensure physical distancing in the classroom, and to provide maximum individual support and practical assistance for each learner from the tutor.
