Out to Learn Willow provides both living willow and dried willow courses and workshops for adults, children and young people within a variety of educational and community settings.

We work with:

Primary Schools

Secondary Schools

Community Groups

Youth Services

Other voluntary and statutory agencies

Public Event Organisers

We specialise in helping schools or community groups to develop their outdoor spaces using living willow structures or dried willow sculptures that naturally enhance school grounds or public places. We also offer a design and build service.

Our workshops are fun for both adults and children who love the hands-on experience of learning the ancient craft of willow weaving and taking a project home with them.

Based in South Wales, we run a variety of willow courses throughout the year from planting a living willow structure to the wonderful traditional skill of basketmaking.

Living Willow Cuttings

Living willow cuttings are available from the beginning of February until the end of March.

Great for developing a corner in school grounds or garden to grow your own completely sustainable craft material. They will produce coloured willow rods suitable for craft projects from November to April.

Each kit contains planting instructions, how to care for your cuttings and what to expect from the first year’s growth. They are also supplied with sufficient weed free membrane to cover your planting area.





Out to Learn willow is run by Clare Revera, a fully qualified teacher and Mel Bastier, a graphic designer. We specialise in training adults and children in the traditional craft of willow weaving, using dried and living willow.
We design and build beautiful structures and sculptures to enhance school grounds, gardens and community areas.
Examples of living structures include domes, tunnels, arbours and arches and sculptures include a giant owl, snail and badger which are large enough for children to fit inside.
We also take on bespoke projects to suit individual requirements. These include full design service with working drawings, recommended if you are a little unsure of what would suit your project.
In addition to building willow structures and helping groups to develop their outdoor spaces we offer a range of workshop style courses. They are suitable for schools, community groups or anyone interested in learning the traditional art of willow weaving with both living and dried willow.
These courses are run throughout the year at a variety of venues in South Wales. We advise early booking as the courses always sell out.
