Growing and using willow has to be one of the best and easiest examples of sustainability in action. You cut it and grows again, push the bit you've cut into the ground and that grows as well…and that's just the start. We have used willow to create a range of living structures at Grozone, including arches, tunnels, fences, a covered seat and stream bank revetments. We also use cut willow stems in art work, for screens and hurdles and for many other purposes around the garden. This workshop will show you how to establish a small willow bed and give you chance to learn and practice the skills involved in creating living willow structures and willow crafts. You'll be welcome to take a few willow 'slips' away with you to start your own willow 'empire' at home!
