Welcome to Wheatcroftwillow

Rachel Evans is a basketmaker based in the Staffordshire Moorlands. She has been making willow baskets since 1992, starting as a hobby and then set up her business Wheatcroftwillow in 2008. She makes making traditional willow baskets, willow coffins and teaches basketry as well as running workshops with community groups.

She can;

• Work to commission to make bespoke baskets, willow coffins or sculptures.

• Deliver courses and workshops in willow basketmaking and willow crafts.

Rachel is based in North Staffordshire, in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands, but will travel to surrounding counties, Derbyshire, the southern Peak District, Cheshire and parts of Leicestershire.  The materials she uses are sourced from Staffordshire and Derbyshire whenever possible and always from the UK.


​Rachel and Martin of Wood and Willow are based at Froghall Wharf, Staffordshire. It is a workshop rather than a shop and we dont have set opening hours so please check with us before you travel if you intend to visit us. Thanks
