All my Willow Basket & Animal Sculpture Days are suitable for beginners and for those with existing willow weaving experience. Just bring along lots of enthusiasm and by the end of the day you will be taking home your chosen willow basket or animal!
These willow days are taught at Coates English Willow, situated at the heart of this country's willow growing industry on the beautiful Somerset Levels (TA3 6HY). Coates has been growing willow in the Somerset Levels since 1819. There is an onsite willow retail shop, museum, craft shops, deli, cafe and sculpture walk.
