Welig Crafts produce a range of willow basketry, bespoke baskets and sculptural pieces
Welig Crafts produce a range of willow basketry, bespoke baskets and sculptural pieces; gardenware, living willow installations and rustic furniture. They undertake other traditional countryside skills e.g. walling and hedgelaying. We provide training and are available to demonstrate basketmaking, pole lathe turning and coppice crafts. A visit to our workshop enables visitors to see traditional crafts in practice and see willow beds and hazel coppice in situ. Welig Crafts is a member of the Basketmakers’ Association, The Irish Basketmakers’ Association and the Hedgelaying Association of Ireland. It is also a member of the Crafts Council of Ireland, the Craft and Design Collective and Ards Arts Collective. Elaine has won two awards at the R.D.S National Crafts Competition.
