Mull Willow offers the unique opportunity to have a go at learning a traditional skill that was once an important part of crofting life.
We are a beautiful croft by the sea, growing many varieties of willow. Join us and make willow and hazel stools, willow teepee bird boxes, or traditional plank-based baskets. On our small croft we grow willows without the use of artificial pesticides or fertilisers. In the winter months we plant and harvest the willow, cutting everything by hand. In the holiday season we open up the croft, so that people can join us on short courses. There's a wood burning stove in the workshop for when it's chilly, and plenty of seating outside. On all our courses, lunch is provided at a simple rustic wooden bar in the workshop – from large windows looking out to sea you can watch seals in the bay, wild geese, and buzzards circling overhead. Suitable for all levels of ability and eexperience!
