Maker's bio

With over a decade of teaching experience, Sarah offers 1 - 2 day willow basketmaking workshops for both beginners and those with existing willow weaving experience. Being passionate about natural materials and skilled traditional craftsmanship, Sarah has designed and created for you several different workshops that explore willow weaving, English basketry techniques and enable you to create your own truly special baskets and sculptures. All workshops are held in Mid Devon, (just 15 minutes from Junction 27 of the M5), and through teaming up with the nearby Lost Kitchen restaurant, not only do you receive expert tuition in a great venue but a lovely lunch too!

Deborah Stevens reviewed: Deer Willow Sculpture Day with Sarah Le Breton

"What a fantastic day! My first ever experience of willow weaving and I managed to make a large reindeer sculpture for my garden. Mainly due to Sarah and her enthusiasm for her craft and her great teaching style. To say that this lady puts her all into teaching the craft, is a bit of an understatement - she literally does, with boundless energy and joy! Not only was she willing everyone on, she encouraged the whole class to really go for it and make a sculpture in the size of our choice - we all went for large and it seemed to delight her that we were all so ambitious! She even sent us away with spare whips, if we wanted them, to carry on and enhance what we'd achieved! She also followed up with a comprehensive email with instructions on how to preserve our sculptures if we were placing them outside! Above and beyond! Thank you Sarah for a really enjoyable day and for being you! XxxX"

Sarah Le Breton Willow responded:

"Thank you Deborah for such a wonderful and insightful review. I'm so glad you had a brilliant day and hope that you gain as much enjoyment seeing your sculpture in your garden as much as you did when making it! Absolute pleasure, Sarah Xx"

Sue Pym reviewed: Willow Reindeer Sculpture Day with Sarah Le Breton Willow

"A lovely day with lovely like minded people. I just wish there were more hours in the day and I had a money tree to fulfill my passion to learn as many willow designs as possible. "

Sarah Le Breton Willow responded:

"Thank you Sue for your lovely review! It was great teaching you all on Friday and seeing your wonderful Reindeer emerge. Glad that you've caught the 'willow bug' and hope that I do get to teach you again in the future. Best wishes, Sarah"
