Willow harvesting for basket making Hanna Van Aelst


Tipperary is home for Hanna Van Aelst,  sculptor & basket-maker.

For more than a decade Hanna has been honing her skills as a weaver using a diverse variety of home grown willow. The process of planting, tending & harvesting the willow herself is central to her understanding of the material, traditions and skills required. Combining her knowledge and experience she works "with" the willow to create beautiful objects made from the heart and rooted in a deep understanding of the past.
