Lin Lovekin is an experienced basketmaker living in West Cornwall. She grows over 30 varieties of willow, hand harvesting them each winter, giving a wide range of beautiful, naturally coloured withies that are woven into baskets both traditional and modern. Baskets to carry and store, for kitchen and garden, foraging and fireside. Her work includes willow lampshades which she makes in a variety of forms, often using flowing lines inspired by the patterns of the natural world, creating shadows and textures in the form of light.
She will run workshops with willow for both adults and children, including frame basket making and willow fish! Enabling all ages to try out some new skills.
