Willow for Artists, Designers & Florists

As a young business we are really excited about the amazing projects that artists and designers are undertaking with our willow. Have a look at some of their creations below and click on their photos to visit their web sites and see more of their work. Have a look at our Facebook page for lots of other photographs and great ideas from our friends! https://www.facebook.com/worldofwillow

If you have an idea for something that you want to create and think that willow might be a great medium to work with then please contact us. We would be delighted talk to you about what you might be able to use, what we can supply and what might be possible with willow. We like bespoke projects and we love a challenge!

Whether you are planning a wedding table decoration, a interior design installation or a cathedral centrepiece, willow might be able to help! It‘s natural, sustainable and comes in wonderful colours, textures, shapes and sizes. Have a look.

 

RHS Chelsea 2017

Yet again willow plays an important role at Chelsea this year. Hurdles in the Broadland Boatbuilder garden, decorative balls from Alladio Sims, a beautiful chair being woven in the Linley Artisan Garden and the Peacocks surveying the scene at Garden Blanc. For me though the real highlight was Salix Exigua, the Coyote willow, given pride of place in the Gold Medal winning Bank of Canada Garden designed by Charlotte Harris. We hope to start growing that one next year!
