What We Do

Creating willow figures for Stockwood Discovery Centre

24-25 March - Making willow figures for a display at Stockwood Discovery Centre.

stockwood1 2We met in a disused farm building belonging to Jane Ingall, near Hitchin, fixed boards to walls and projected the small drawings onto the boards bringing them up to life size. We then marked, drilled and pegged the outlines of the figures with dowel for the initial pairing. We have a runner, gymnast, footballer, weightlifter, swimmer and cyclist. We will also make two Olympic torches, a bicycle, a football and some weights for the weight lifter.

The weaving is being done in willow by lots of different Hertfordhsire Basketry members. See our Stockwood Figures gallery for more images of the work.
