Leilah started her willow weaving business as a hobby through Medieval Re-enactment around 2000. First making medieval items like willow bee skeps, eel traps, quivers and chicken cages and not a basket in sight!
As Leilah’s interests moved away from the medieval scene she started to make more everyday items such as baskets and decorations and she soon became interested traditional green wood working too. Since then the scale of her ambition has grown and she tackles large scale willow sculptures, a wide range of basketry, willow fencing and green willow projects too. She also has a collection of sculptural pieces that can be hired for events.
Leilah loves to share these tradition craft skills and teaches widely.
