  1. Thank you Karen for selling me a small amount of willow recently to make xmas decorations. I would be interested in attending a workshop this year, also to buy more willow from you if you have enough to sell, 4′ and 5′ browns for small projects, bird feeders etc. Happy New Year! sheila Mole x.

      Hope you’ve had a great holiday. Will check willow supplies but I’m sure I will be able to sell you some. I will be advertising some new classes soon, I know I keep saying that! I’ve been enjoying my holiday too much! Take care, Karen.
