Willow Weaving

Rewarding Results

There is something about working with willow that is so mindful, relaxing and satisfying!
Willow weaving can be used to not only make practical pieces but to create beautiful sculptures large and small. From bird feeders, dragonfly, hearts, flowers, angels through to obelisk (plant supports) and harlequin trees. 
Much of the Willow we use for some of our larger projects is grown and coppiced here on the Birtley Estate!

We offer a selection of morning, afternoon and full day workshops throughout the year. 

Wattle Hurdle Workshop

Learn a heritage skill

Join one of our Mini Wattle Hurdle Workshops and learn the weaving technique used to create hurdles of all sizes. You can use either Hazel or Willow to make a 6ft long hurdle panel, perfect for those border edges. 


Relax and breath

If you can breathe you can practice yoga.“Anybody can breathe; therefore anybody can practice yoga." - Sri T Krishnamacharya, The Heart of Yoga.
