Sarah Hatton started willow weaving in 2008 and soon realised that it was something she really enjoyed. In 2009 she planted around 2000 cuttings of 20 different varieties of willow. This gave Sarah a constant and sustainable supply of willow grown in Wales. She setup her business in 2012 and became a full time willow weaver in 2015. She is now selling her baskets, willow cuttings and bundles of willow both dried and fresh.

TEACHING: Sarah teaches a variety of willow weaving courses at a local venue which can be booked through the website. She also provides workshops and talks to classes and groups throughout the South Wales area.

SELLING: Sarah sells her baskets from her website and also at local craft fairs and events throughout South Wales.
