These two styles of woven seats have been made using about 15 x 30 inch long thick willow cuttings spaced at about 6 inches apart (always use an odd number of stakes for the weaving to work) and a little less than one of our bundles of 3 to 5 ft long willow whips just weaving in and out.
The seat at the top has a slightly raised back by just using a few longer cuttings at the back with a little extra weaving - £48 plus £19 carriage.
The lower seat has a few 7 and 8 ft long whips pushed in alongside some of the stakes to create a simple canopy - £63 plus £19 carriage.
The soil on the top of the seat can be covered with turf or low growing plants such as lawn chamomile or a creeping thyme.
We made these seats over the winter - see the photographs on the left - with the photographs to the right showing growth in early June.
