The Willow Way is a small Vancouver Island based business specializing in Rustic Furniture including: Bent Willow chairs, Dining Chairs, Stone and Tile Top Tables, Outdoor Benches, Living Willow Fences and Structures and more. In the summer I'm found at The Farmer's Market and shows. I teach workshops, mostly in the spring and fall. I spend as much time as I can in the forest, on my bike, or in my garden.
"I make all pieces by hand made using locally sourced materials, with an attention to detail. My customers appreciate handcrafted items, created with a minimal impact on our Planet, using readily available and renewable materials, and the effort it takes to create such an item."
Where does the wood come from?
All woods used are a weed species that grow in ditches, along logging roads, and in clearcuts. Harvesting is done by hand.
Are these my designs?
Many of these designs are "traditional" or "folk" designs, but I'm constantly coming up with new ideas and improvements!
In one day you can make and take home your own Bent Willow Chair. This is a great first Rustic Furniture project where you will learn the fundamentals of working with bent Willow shoots and creating a square frame with pieces of Alder.
All tools and materials provided.
