Ysgol Pontrhydfendigaid Bug Palace

This is a bug palace we had a lot of fun building, on a glorious day last week at Ysgol Pontrhydfendigaid.

There are more photos here and I’ve also put together some¬†instructions for making a bug palace.

Ysgol Llanwenog Living Willow Play Area

We spent a lovely sunny day with a fantastic turn out, building a living willow play area and outdoor classroom at Ysgol Llanwenog on Saturday. There is more info here.

Ysgol Cilcennin Willow Play Area

The caption reads “Some members of Ysgol Cilcennin in their new “Willow Dome”. The children helped build the dome, and once fitted with curved benches will serve as play area and fair-weather classroom”.

One of our structures, that we built with a workshop at Ysgol Cilcennin, was recently featured in the Cambrian News. 

There are more photos here.

Giant Living Willow Fish


After the very unfriendly willow planting weather that has compressed the entire planting season into four very busy weeks, we’re finally away. We’ve just finished our largest structure to date, a 400 square foot willow maze of tunnels in the shape of a giant fish or sea serpent. We’ve also completed a large dome at Ysgol Mydroilyn and a smaller dome with tunnels at Ysgol Mynach.
