Wyldwood Willow vacation time

Wyldwood Willow Vacation Time


I am currently away on holiday for a month, so except for booking places on my weaving workshops and the online tutorials, my Wyldwood Willow shop will be temporarily shut from 22nd January until 26th February 2024. Feel free to browse the store but any orders for willow products and kits will not be processed until I return.  I will be open for business again from 26th February. Sorry for any inconvenience, but it will be safest to place your order for Willow items after that date.

It's been a whirlwind 2 weeks! The time is passing fast, but the days are slow...it's amazing to think we still have another glorious 14 days on this beautiful island... Palawan in the Philipines.There are baskets and weavings everywhere. It's hard to only select 10 pics - these probably describe it best- the food Is delicious. Snorkeling is awesome on the coral reefs. The houses made of bamboo are feat of engineering. Food is growing in abundance and the fresh fish caught for dinner- something else!!! Wild dogs everywhere, wild pigs digging up crabs on the beach for a snack! Little children shouting hello with lovely wide smiles. I love this crazy place. El Nido is busy and thriving... but I still feel myself unwinding, recharging and relaxing in the heat... It's definitely good for the bones! I will be straight back into it on my return, with the willow harvesting,workshops and commissions. But right now, a coffee by the beach and a kayaking day I think... love.abd warmth to you all xx ... See MoreSee Less
