Justine & Alan Burgess

West Wales Willows
We are willow weavers, tutors and growers and we're located in a remote, beautiful, magical valley, halfway up a mountain.  We grow 260 varieties of willow and living willow structures and weave willow into beautiful and useful baskets and other items.  The valley is used by red kites and buzzards and we are treated to their presence on most days.  The willow provides materials for our profession as well as habitat for birds and insects throughout the year.  In the early spring, the willow pollen provides food for bees as they are emerging after their winter hibernation.  It really is a magical place!

Directions to studio

From the A40 at Nantgaredig, take the B4310 to Brechfa.  Half a mile after passing through the village of Brechfa, turn left off the B4310 towards Gwernogle, passing the Chapel and the old Post Office on the right hand side.  Take the first turning on the right - this has a no through road sign spray painted with a smiley face!  The Mill is the first house on the right and parking is across the road on the left.
