Willow weaving kits, courses and living willow

With Hundreds of different species and a multitude of bright and vibrant colours, willow is an exciting and extremely versatile plant to create living and non living furniture or structures.

As a plant it is hardy and unique, it can be manipulated in to beautiful living archways, tunnels, fedges (fence hedges) domes and garden furniture. You can literally push a Willow rod 1 foot into the soft ground in autumn and by the spring of the following year it will flourish and grow at an amazingly fast rate.

After one season of growth you will have a structure which you can prune and then re plant to create more living structures or store the rods to weave a lovely basket.

Willow is also brilliant for making bent wood furniture; a willow rod can be harvested and then bent to create gentle sweeping curves within a piece of furniture.

If you harvest willow over the winter months but don't have time to create a masterpiece there and then, in the future simply soak the willow for a few days it will become bendy again.
