The group at Headway are putting their new found skills to use weaving some beautiful things out of cane and willow. We have also had the chance to look at one of the baskets from Time and Tide Museum to compare the techniques we are using with those of the past.
Joan has nearly finished her basket.
Janet has finished hers and started on an egg basket.
Owen has been weaving with willow, making an obelisk and a tension plate.
Wednesday saw the private view of the exhibition at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse where members of both basket-making groups came together with friends, families and Withy Arts project workers and trustees to celebrate their success at the opening of the exhibition.
The baskets look beautiful and have had many appreciative comments from museum staff and visitors already.
Joan’s sister Heather was able to come along to see her lovely work.
The new Withy Arts banners look splendid and gave a special feel to the exhibition.
If you get the chance, the exhibition is open every day until Sunday 29th October 2017. Our thanks to Paul and Miriam at Gressenhall for their help setting up.
