Basket Making Workshop with Heike Hartmann Sat 12th October
Brookwood Pottery welcomes master craftsperson Heike Hartmann to the studio for a very special basket making workshop on Saturday 12th October. Heike is a member of the Irish Basket Makers Association and has participated in exhibitions by the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland. Heike started her own business, Baurnafea Willow Works in 1996 selling baskets and garden structures at craft fairs, markets and exhibitions. She grows many varieties of willow in her garden and occasionally adds other natural materials such as dogwood, rush or straw to her pieces.
For this workshop which runs from 10 - 5 pm we will use willow that Heike has grown herself to create our very own basket. There are 8 places available on the course which includes a delicious homecooked lunch by Elaine and treats by the Queen of Tarts cafe, Dublin.
