Willow Weaving with Wyldwood Willow – sculpture
November 16, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - November 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am£195
I am Amanda Rayner, I set up my business Wyldwood Willow in 2000. I first started weaving when my friend Phil was emigrating to Oz and was offering several bundles of Willow and a quick afternoons lesson in how to make a basket. It all carried on from there and the rest as they say is history…
I now weave all sorts of things from baskets and coffins to decorative and living Willow fences, tunnels, arbours and domes. Sculpture and more recently furniture and light shades.
I teach at many venues including Humble by Nature and The Sustainability Centre and also share my skills at lots of festivals throughout the summer.
I realised pretty soon after starting that the sharing was where it was at, this is what really fills me up inside as a person and my drive to encourage more weaving has lead me to show in excess of 500 people each year how to weave something…
This is our third workshop with Amanada and this time we will be making a Willow sculpture in the form of a deer.
