Lyn Edwards - Weaving

Having moved from the city to a rural location, a chance encounter with a willow basket maker inspired a creative interest in growing, walking and gathering materials from the lanes, woodlands and countryside of the natural environment.  A teacher of craft and largely influenced by her background in textiles, Lyn Edwards’ work combines the colours and textures of willow, rush, bark and leaves to create baskets, bowls and boxes.  Her work also extends to the outside, creating garden structures, living willow play environments, bowers and sculptures.  The works displayed in this showcase raise awareness of the creative potential of willow and hedgerow materials, whilst demonstrating the techniques of creating practical and beautiful woven objects.
