Rachel Harwood Willow

Drawing on my experience of wildlife and nature, I use British grown willow from Somerset to create sculptures for the home and garden. Connecting with the natural environment is my passion and I try to capture the movement of nature within my sculptures. I love to teach my practices on and inspire people on the use and beauty of natural materials to reconnect with the natural world . 

I currently teach workshops in Warwickshire at Charlecote Park National Trust and Bonds Lifestyle, private bookings are also welcome. Current workshops can be found on my Workshop Calendar and Facebook page but feel free to get in touch with any queries.

The Willow Shop

All of the items in the shop are made with British grown willow, as these are handmade with natural materials there may be slight variations in size and colour which adds to their individual charm.

Handmade Moon Gazing Hare

Hares are handmade from natural willow, the picture shown is an example, so there may be slight variations in colour. Total Height of hare is roughly up to 1 meter.

"Had a great day on Friday making a “hare.” Very pleased with the result. The yurt at Bonds was lovely, with a very warm log fire. Thank you Rachel for your tuition and help. Look forward to joining one of your workshops again."

Sue Marshall

Willow Hare Workshop 2022

"Just to say a big thank you for such a great willow workshop today at Yew Tree Farm - Wootton Wawen. Beautifully organised and you instructed us so patiently and so competently. It was such fun too and to take home a relatively respectable willow hare at the end of the session was the icing on the cake.

Congrats on being such a very clever and creative lady. And especially for allowing us to have such a fun day there."
