Sarah Hatton, the course tutor, has been willow weaving since 2008. Sarah has recently passed a City and Guilds in basketry making her a qualified basketmaker. Sarah was awarded the Craft Showcase Award 2015 at Made by Hand, Cardiff. She grows her own willow in Caerphilly which gives her a yearlong sustainable source of willow.

Want to review this course?

I really enjoyed it and found the class quite interesting. I always wanted to work with willow but never managed the courage to just get up and go . I am glad I did it. Also would like to know when there will be another course.
