Living willow

We run hands-on living willow workshops for groups such as schools and day nurseries, giving children and staff the opportunity to work together outdoors to create a unique willow play structure. Workshops are run during late winter and early spring, as January to March is the ideal time to plant living willow.

Each project is unique, and specially designed to suit your needs – it could be a dome, tunnel, labyrinth or something different – willow lends itself to imaginative structures! Children can also make a small willow object to take home, such as a bug or dream catcher. We advise on caring for your new structure and can maintain it for you to ensure it establishes well and keeps looking good. All the willow we use is grown in the South West.

“It was a truly fascinating experience for all and the willow dome is very well established now and is used every day by the children at the Nursery. It was a brilliant and exciting day and one that I would wholeheartedly recommend. It is a fantastic learning resource for the Nursery.”
