Jenny Crisp Basketmaker
Jenny has been a professional basket maker and willow grower for 30 years. Based in Herefordshire, she grows the willow, to make the baskets, to sell directly to the public. She creates, educates and exhibits passing on her knowledge and skills to an ever appreciative audience. The work is both traditional and contemporary. Retaining a respect for long established traditions Jenny makes for contemporary living. Her products are both functional and decorative and are for indoor and outdoor use. These range from small items such as trivets used in the kitchen to large scale woven walls built on site outdoors.
Jenny will be taking part in h.Art from Saturday 7th until Sunday 15th September. There will be the opportunity to take part in very informal, free "have a go" workshops daily from 11am until 3pm run by Patti. Anyone is welcome to come along and spend an enjoyable 1 to 3 hours honing their willow skills from and leaving with a tree, star or fish. They do make ideal handmade gifts for family or friends.
