Welig Crafts produce a range of willow basketry, bespoke baskets and sculptural pieces; garden ware, living willow installations and rustic furniture. We also undertake other traditional countryside skills e.g. walling and hedge laying. We provide training and are available to demonstrate basket making, pole lathe turnery and coppice crafts.
