Ways with Willow are a social enterprise based in Fowey in South Cornwall, providing beginner’s willow courses & workshops.

We work with people of all ages, from all backgrounds, and specialise in working with adults and children who are disadvantaged, vulnerable and isolated.

We are passionate about the preservation and revival of traditional crafts, providing accessible opportunities throughout the community, and promoting the use of willow as a sustainable material.

Ways with Willow works with both dried and living willow, and all of our courses and workshops are lots of fun! Everyone loves the traditional craft of willow weaving, from children to adults.  

What could be more satisfying than making your own willow sculpture to take home with you!  

Ways with Willow provide a variety of different courses and workshops:

We work with:

  • Schools and colleges
  • Day centres within adult social care
  • Adults and children with learning disabilities
  • Mental health sufferers

  • Community groups and projects

Willow is a tactile and incredibly versatile material, and working with it is very relaxing, therapeutic and rewarding.
