Willow




Heres a picture of my finished wreath, draped initially around the cormorant on the quay by chapel street, then in its final resting place on my front door

the wreath was made from the offcuts of the willow from our living willow sculpture, which we cut a few weeks back, see the course notes for the specific details, but its such a pliant, strong workable material, little wonder it used to be woven into baskets, many believe it was the inspiration for celtic knotwork in the great illuminated gospels of lindisfarne or the book of kells





so vibrant is willow, that you can just plant a stick of it and a tree will grow from this
heres us weaving our wreaths
