we have been working with schools for over 20 years so have lots of experience and of course the relevant CRB clearance and public liability insurance.
we can design willow features to suit any outside space large or small.
We will be running some more workshops in 2014. contact us for details.
our workshops are suitable for complete beginners and are always fun. we have been teaching willow weaving workshops for many years and still love to see the completed sculptures at the end of the course!

and give the little children a Christmas weaving workshop.

This is our display from Morden Park Country Fair earlier this spring. We met a local teacher and worked at her school yesterday after starting our willow display at the garden festival. We go back down to Hampton Court on Friday and will be there until the show finishes 7 days later. We are camping so hope the weather stays fine!

we can work with up to groups of 30 children at a session, often with the children working in pairs to make large structures or animals.
all we require is an indoor space for groups to work in if the weather is cold or wet. look at our photo galleries to see what can be created by enthusiastic children!

We often get asked to repair living willow structures that have been neglected by schools. often schools don't have the time or expertise to repair their willow structures but want to keep them as they are so popular with the children.
The long tunnel in the pictures is a least 12 years old and was not planted by us. whoever did plant it used the worst possible willow variety, bowles hybrid, as it is horribly inflexible when trying to weave in new growth.
We had to do a severe haircut job on the tunnel to get it back into some semblence of its original shape but it will look great by early summer with its new growth.
