Through the lens of nature, explore traditional basketry with a sculptural perspective. With a series of exercises, uncover the secret life of natural materials and how to connect with nature. Learn traditional basketry and weaving techniques including random weaving, twining and construction, using a variety of foraged and harvested natural fibres. This practical workshop will give you the opportunity to experiment and explore, completing a series of sculptural forms.
Catriona Pollard is an accomplished contemporary basketry artist who can see the extraordinary in the ordinary. Predominantly using found and salvaged organic material, with work that adds a contemporary layer to the ancient form of basketry, Catriona’s work is featured nationally in galleries, design spaces and private collections.

Contemporary Sculptural Basketry Artist

"My work is about seeing the extraordinary in everyday moments. For me, it’s about being still, and letting the beauty emerge. I use nature as a way to connect with people that goes beyond physical beauty, but really touches them in a personal and profound way."
