Using traditional methods to create contemporary design Green Spiral Willow is all about using willow to create stunning woven items.

Green Spiral Willow was created by Yanina Stockings. After growing up in the highlands of Scotland, she was surrounded by the ancient Caledonian pine forest where she takes a lot of inspiration. She has a BSc Hons in conservation and sustainability is very important to her.

All the willow and rush supplied in her classes are sourced from the south of England and she tries to harvest her own locally. This helps her bring the ancient rural craft of weaving to everyone in an eco-friendly way!
