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.
