About me

Hi, my name is Lynn

Several years ago I saw a gardening programme which showed a woman making Sweet Pea supports out of willow. I liked the idea of making something for the garden that was eco friendly and looked aesthetically pleasing. A friend recommended a course run by Carol Horsington, of ‘Cornish Willow’ at Treovis Farm, near Darley Ford. I attended several courses with Carol, whose extensive knowledge and practical experience coaxed and inspired me to persue Willow Weaving more seriously.

Whilst working on the supports at home a passerby asked if I sold these to the public, and suggested that I should sell them at the local farm shops. An idea was born and since then I have been supplying a local garden centre, and various craft fairs and events across Cornwall.

I mostly work to commission so please do get in touch to discuss your requirements and any bespoke ideas you may have.

My range of products includes; Garden Structures, For the home, Sculptures, Weddings, Special Occasions and Christmas. To see examples for my work please have a look through the Gallery.

My work recently featured on an episode of ‘Doc Martin’ a Cornish based TV drama, where various willow pieces were used as part of the set.
