Amanda Rayner started Wyldwood Willow in 2000 and her passion to share the skill of this ancient craft and her desire to limit the use of plastic in the world has helped her to create a thriving business. Based near us here in Monmouthshire, she has a wonderful variety of workshops and willow weaving demonstrations and we are delighted that she has agreed to offer her courses here at Penhein. There are six different willow weaving classes that you can try,  so choose the one that best suits your group. If you are interested, let us know and we will check Amanda’s availability for you.
