About us

More than Willow is based in rural Shropshire. We are a young business but have a long history of growing and using herbs, growing and weaving willow and other natural materials. We enjoy sharing our interests and skills to encourage others.

Willow weaving and workshops

We run weaving workshops using willow and other natural materials to inspire you to get creative and have a sense of enjoyment and achievement from working with natural materials.

Most of the of willow used in our workshops is grown by us here in Shropshire. Each spring we plant more willow so in a few years we hope to be self sufficient.  Occasionally we run out of the right size or type of willow and then we buy it in from reputable growers.

Woven willow items that we make are sold at local outlets or at selected events.

Herbs – grow them, love them, use them

We run workshops and give talks on herbs to share our passion for these wonderful plants that are so useful for us and for bees and other insects too.  Be prepared to smell, taste and discover more about them.

A selection of herbs grown in peat free compost are available for sale at our events.

Talks demonstrations and events for groups

Sharing, encouraging and helping others learn more is a basic ethos of More than Willow and so we regualrly give talks, demonstrations and run workshops throughout Shropshire and the West Midlands.

If you would like us to give a talk or run a workshop please get in touch info@morethanwillow.co.uk it is always a pleasure to share our enthusiasm with others.
