Willow Weaving Courses
The Musgrove family has always been passionate about willow and keeping specialist weaving skills alive. It is important for us to share our willow knowledge and help those who share our passion for willow crafts.
One of the ways of doing this was by holding weaving courses on our willow farm. In the early days, members of the Musgrove family taught students. As demand grew, more courses were added to the itinerary and external tutors were employed to help. Recruitment wasn’t easy. It takes a special person to be able to teach.
***Courses are postponed for the foreseeable future***
Over the years, strong relationships were built with a number of brilliant basket makers, sculpture artists and hurdle makers. Today, they are no longer just valued customers. Many have become good friends. They have helped us to teach thousands of people the skills to make beautiful pieces from willow. Each tutor did an amazing job. Many former students are now teachers themselves!
