Many groups of people can benefit from the relaxing yet focussed activity of willow weaving. It takes one away from ones normal modes of thinking.
I have seen good results in working with groups suffering from various types of adversity or needing a space to share with others in similar roles; such as alcoholics, refugees, vulnerable women, elderly isolated, Dads with young children, long term unemployed, ‘NEWTS’ and patients in a secure hospital. This physical, repetitive yet creative therapy has been useful in reducing stress and providing relaxation as a means for people in an informal learning group to engage with one another.

We offer a range of community based workshops that promote teamwork and social engagement. We can deliver our workshops either indoors or outdoors and can offer a range services that allow participants to create their own pieces such as
basketry items or plant trainers for their gardens.
