Heather Dawes has been teaching willow weaving courses and workshops for over 15 years, fascinated by willow and the fact that a pile of wet sticks can be made into something both beautiful and practical. Drawing on teachings from tutors around the world Heather teaches different ways of twisting and turning the sticks and using different techniques to make both traditional and contemporary baskets and sculptures.
