Make a willow garden trug

Ever wanted to learn how to weave your own willow garden trug? Then this is the course for you!


Willow weaving was once a traditional skill on the Gwent Levels so why not come along to Magor Marsh and make a traditional and useful garden trug.

Our most popular course, this beautiful garden trug will introduce you to weaving frame baskets. The course will include different techniques of willow weaving and basket making.

You will be shown how to create a frame, add ribs and the weaving and how to design your own pattern.

Join Sarah Hatton, as seen on BBC’s The Repair Shop, of Hatton Willow in the beautiful surrounds of the Nature Reserve.
