Hatton Willow, nestled in the heart of Caerphilly within the South Wales Valleys is a dedicated small business. I make willow baskets entirely by hand, utilising locally sourced materials cultivated across the UK.

Willow baskets

Made using organically grown willow

Willow is woven into intricate patterns to create a long lasting and high quality willow basket. Using willow grown in Caerphilly, Wales.​

My Ethos

I use the heritage craft of willow weaving to create willow products. Willow is sustainably harvested each year from my own withy bed.

Growing my own willow not only ensures an organic and sustainable supply. It also provides an abundance of willow cuttings and bundles that I offer for sale.

It is vitally important to me to share the knowledge that I’ve have acquired over the years I’ve been training in this craft.

Willow weaving courses

A wide range of courses to suit all abilities

Willow weaving courses hosted in Nantgarw China Works Museum. Courses include traditional basketry as well as more contemporary work.

About Sarah

I’m Sarah Hatton and from my workshop in the South Wales Valleys and a 5 acre field nearby, I grow and create my willow baskets.

I’ve appeared on series 4, 5 and 13 of the The Repair Shop on BBC1 repairing a baby weighing scales, a willow crib and a horses head. I have also appeared with fellow willow weaver, Mel Bastier, on the Gwent Levels episode of Countryfile weaving a female brinker willow sculpture.
