Willow Dragonfly & Platter

Sarah Gardner
£30

Learn how to weave with willow to create a sculptural dragonfly form for your garden. You will learn how to make the body, head and wings using techniques such as wailing and pairing to complete your piece. You will also have the opportunity to make a platter to serve bread or fruit on your dining table. We will be using soaked farmed willow from Somerset.

Crafts using your hands can be a therapeutic and an enjoyable experience. Make your very own handmade items to give as gifts or keep for your own garden.

This course is suitable for all levels including beginners.

Green Room

All materials and tools provided.

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.
