Willow Boat

Sarah Gardner
£60

Learn how to weave with willow to create a sculptural form in a boat-like shape that can be used for serving fruit or bread. You will learn how to make a basic curved vessel by manipulating soaked willow, and weaving and packing techniques to complete your form. Willow of different colours and varieties will be available to experiment with.

Creating your own handmade crafts can be a therapeutic and an enjoyable experience and you will have beautiful items to take home with you or give as gifts.

Green Room

All basketry materials and tools will be provided. Please bring a notebook and pen.

Sarah trained as textile designer, this sparked her interest in constructed textiles and led to her practicing basketry for the past 7 Years. She is interested in growing and foraging natural materials for making but also has a make-do-and-mend approach and is always on the look-out for man-made materials that can be adapted or useful in basket-making. This requires a lot of testing to work out the qualities of the materials and their suitability for different weaving techniques. As an advocate for the crafts Sarah also helps run a small leather accessories company and teaches and practices basketry in Brighton.
