Willow & Wetlands

Willow & Wetlands basketmakers

Basketmakers. Our site is open to the public to take a guided tour to watch skilled craftsmen making traditional and modern baskets. The tour tells the story of willow from planting to finished basket.
We run basket making courses, living willow courses and willow Christmas decorations courses. We have now completed our conference room, it is a large well lit, airy space. This wonderful new space is available to hire for courses or meetings or other functions at both hourly and daily rates. Please call for further details, or to arrange an appointment to have a look. We are pleased that one local group has already chosen the space as their local meeting place, and we have a range of willow related courses in place to make the most of this great space.
We grow over 70 acres of willow on the Somerset levels, an area of huge environmental importance. The willow is processed here on site and approximately half of it is used to make Coates willow charcoal which is known by artists all over the world. We supply basket makers and willow artists with willow all year round.
Visitors to our centre can purchase willow and baskets from our shop as well as enjoying a look around our museum and exhibitions or a walk through woodland and "withy beds". The delightful Courtyard Tearoom serves delicious food and drinks and is open all year.
