Willow and Wool
‘Plas Helyg’ means willow palace in Welsh. In Wales place names are descriptive and being a new ‘place’ I looked for a name which reflects how I would like to see our smallholding develop. I love willow and I love the things you can do with it: baskets, sculptures, firewood, windbreaks, fences, animal feed, and the list goes on & on. What a wonderful tree! So gradually I envisage planting and weaving a new temple of willow into being.
I sell my handmade crafts at Origin in King Street, Carmarthen. I also run workshops, which are listed on www.livelightly.co.uk
