Blithfield Willowcrafts

Eddie Glew runs Blithfield Willowcrafts, which offers short courses in basket making.

“My baskets and sculptures are handcrafted with locally coppiced willow from Staffordshire along with willow from Somerset. With this I create a diverse selection of willow items, ranging from traditional baskets, such as log baskets and berry baskets, to boxing hares and willow hurdle fencing.”

Eddie runs courses, demonstrations and talks across the country and has featured on Channel 4’s ‘Kirstie’s Vintage Home’ & ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Home’.

His work has been commissioned by ‘The Worshipful Company of Basket Makers’, Film & TV production companies, large retailers, local produce shops, and private commissions.
