About

Hi from Skovstuen Pil and Norway!

We are also a workaway host. An since we have many more request thru this sight it gets updated often. Read this description good. And of course the one beneath.
workaway.info/435678168514-en.html

We are a small family run business of wife and husband – both basketmaker, three kids and two cats.

We have been growing willow on a small island centrally located in the southern part of Norway for more than 10 years. Our willow-field is 6 dekar and consist of approximately 60.000 mother-plants and produce estimated 10-15 tons of ecological willow every year.
The willow is harvested in november/december and again in march - if weather condition allows us to do so. After being harvest, the willow is sorted into length and quality.

For our baskets we use many different natural materials that we harvest in the forest. You will be a part of the harvest and preparations of this materials. If time is right, you can learn some handicraft, and maybe make some small items of willow.

Our house is a small wooden house with just enough space for us all. You will have your own room, but you might have to share with one more wwoofer. We are three people in our family, and you are most welcome to be a part of that. Making food, doing housecleaning and normal everyday stuff.

At Skovstuen Pil you will work 5 days a week, approximately 6 hours a day, with a long lunchbreak in the middle of the day. We are probably working more hours, depending on our ongoing projects -.you are of course, most welcome to join us in the workshop in the evenings.

What projects we work on is mostly related to the four seasons:
January -february: Working in the workshop making baskets and other crafts. If the winter is not too heavy we harvest in the forest. Sorting the willow, harvesting willow
Mars: Harvesting and sorting willow. Crafts in the workshop
April - may: Taking care of customers, sending gods, making willow projects in costumer’s gardens. Preparing for garden-markets, and giving classes. Preparing natural materials for basketmaking.
Taking care of the willow-feeld. Planting new willow.
June: Harvesting materials in the forest and lakes. Making baskets and small items for the summers markets.
July: CLOSED
August - October: Prepare for winter, still enjoying the summer and autumn. Doing all the other stuff we did not manage the rest of the year.
November- december: Harvesting natural materials, making small things for christmas markets. Harvest and sorting willow

To fully learn a little bit of handicrafts, is best if you stay for at least two or three weeks. It is best for both you and us, if you also know that you enjoy and are capable of doing stuff with your hands.
