Willow Craft

with Leilah from Dragon Willow

Leilah Vyner is the person behind Dragon Willow. She has been weaving with willow since year 2000 and has even been photographed with Mary Berry and her willow characters for a Christmas feature.

Leilah has been coming to Blacksmith Shop Crafts for almost seven years. She has tutored pheasants, chickens, deer, Christmas obelisks, Christmas decorations and baskets. The deer workshop has been the most successful one here at Blacksmith Shop Crafts.

Leilah brings with her all the equipment and materials required for the workshops. And she very kindly lets me join in. I have learnt so much from her and always thoroughly enjoy these workshop days with Leilah and her willow.

She can tutor random weave as well as a more disciplined form of basket weaving.

Leilah takes commissions and her work is frequently displayed at parks and stately homes.
