Golden Bay Willow, Golden Bay Weaving

Go Willow! is a small operation, based in Golden Bay with a Golden Bay withy planted with 5 types of willow.

Our aim is to weave beautifully crafted willow coffins, stunning sculptural work, delightful everyday baskets and to run courses to enthuse others with the material and the craft.

Our speciality is willow coffins:

Our particular speciality is woven willow coffins: for burials, cremations and of course, natural burials too.  Our willow coffins are beautifully crafted, attractive and eco-friendly.  They are made in Golden Bay (New Zealand) with willow grown in Golden Bay.  This particular coffin has a willow lid with a central ridge made from recycled rimu.  Please go to the Caskets Section to see the specific colours and sizes of coffins that are in stock now, and available for immediate delivery.
