Hatton Willow is a small business committed to making quality willow baskets handmade using materials grown in the UK.
Based in the South Wales Valleys town of Caerphilly, famous for its Castle and cheese, we use the heritage craft of willow weaving to produce willow products using willow harvested yearly from our withy bed. It gives us a sustainable source of willow which is an amazingly flexible material and provides us with a source of willow cuttings and willow bundles that we offer for sale. Hatton Willow attend many events throughout the UK and can give a talk or demonstration and run a willow workshop at your event.
Sarah Hatton of Hatton Willow has appeared on series 4 and 5 of the fantastic show The Repair Shop on BBC1 repairing a baby weighing scales and also a willow crib. Sarah has also appeared with fellow willow weaver, Mel Bastier, on the Gwent Levels episode of Countryfile weaving a female brinker willow sculpture.

Crafting a Better World, The United Nations Office in Geneva

The United Nations Office at Geneva are hosting a new exhibition entitled “Crafting a better world” to recognize and support the importance of handicraft around the globe. For the United Nations, it is also an opportunity to demonstrate another level on which we are all equal and to promote culture as an instrument of dialogue among people. I have been asked by the UK Misssion to the UN to represent the UK with one of my Welsh Shopper baskets.

Grow your own


We grow 25 different varieties of willow which you can purchase to grow your own. We have many sizes and colours of willow including some varieties from the National Willow Collection.


I really enjoyed it and found the class quite interesting. I always wanted to work with willow but never managed the courage to just get up and go.
