Craft & lantern willow withy sticks for lantern making.


Buff Willow is great for 3D modelling, sculpting and forming the skeleton of your willow lantern.


These willow Sticks are between 5ft and 6ft in height and come in a tied bundle. 10kg equates to approximately 400 - 500 sticks.


These are a naturally product so the specification of willow sticks in a stack will vary they start fairly thick (about 1cm) and then taper to a thinner end.


Withies can be bent into shapes and secured with masking tape, gaffer tape or wire then covered in wet strength tissue paper to make amazing structures.


Naturally, willow sticks have good flexibility but for more complex structures try soaking them in water overnight - a bath is always a good option!

All our willow is grown in the UK


Willow withy sticks are naturally very flexible but you can make them more so for more advanced structures.


Soak the willows sticks in water for 24 hours and they will be super malleable. You can put in the bath overnight or use a large plastic bag.


Once you have bent into the shape you want simply secure with masking tape or wire. Then you are ready to cover with wet strength tissue paper.




Willow Stick Length - between 5 and 6 foot


This is a natural product so each bundle and stick will vary

Willow source

having been let down by a supplier at the very last minute on Ebay, we were overjoyed by the service. It was excellent. You did what you said you were going to do. The willow was also lovely to work with - very smooth and great for basketry and basic weaving also.
My only feedback would be about the way the willow was wrapped - ie in single use clingfilm wrap, rather than a plastic bag. The latter would have made the job of moving the willow for soaking and proving and then delivery much easier and less wasteful.
