Living Structures for your School & Home

We create engaging natural spaces from willow for children to explore and inhabit.

We design, create and maintain these structures that fire up childrens’ imaginations along with their interest in conservation and environmental issues.

What We Do

"The ladies at Creative Living Willow have taken care of our willow structure here at Garras Primary for a number of years and have provided invaluable service in its care and maintenance in that time. We are very grateful for their expertise."

Fire your childrens' imaginations with a
Creative Living Willow structure

"Chris and Gwyneth have been looking after the willow at St Martin's for many years, come rain or shine they make sure the willow keeps looking its best.
The children find it all very interesting and thoroughly enjoy watching them at work! The domed willow provides a great space for children to play and is often a jail, a den, a house or a castle. The open-ended opportunities are endless and the children love it!"

St Martins CE Primary School, Liskeard

Schools with structures
we made and maintain

We are very proud of the structures we have created for schools and private houses across the county of Cornwall and beyond.

It’s our goal to enrich the lives of children wherever we can.

Meet Creative Living Willow

Chris Raymond Partner

Chris has had a life long interest in growing things. This led to courses on willow structures in Somerset.

The opportunity arose to help build some of these in gardens and in schools.

Having been in education for 35 years she saw the need and opportunity to provide such structures for others to use and enjoy and at the same time encourage children to care for their environment. 

Gwyneth Evans Partner

Gwyneth is a freelance artist specialising in watercolours and ceramics.

Following an extensive career in Art and Primary education and as a practising artist and potter, Gwyneth was keen to develop further skills using living willow.

She attended training in the Centre for Alternative Technology in Machynlleth, North Wales and on the Somerset levels where she learned the basic skills needed to work successfully with this medium.
