In this course, you’ll learn how to make a woven paper basket with Julia Clarke, a sculptor specialising in natural materials including, cane willow and paper. With an affinity for teaching and demonstrating 3D techniques Julia takes you through creating a basket from Japanese paper band and thread, cane and raffia.
You will learn how to create an unusual base called a chrysanthemum base, and then a simple twining technique with a variety of natural materials.
The baskets can be both functional and sculptural, fitting for any home.

Tutor biography:

Julia Clarke creates sculptures for indoor and outdoor spaces. She works with willow, both dried and living, with wire, steel, paper, and ceramic.

Natural materials and environmental concerns are an important element of her work and the rhythm of weaving and using tactile materials is important to her process.

She states that her work comes from a place of having to make, "I’ve always needed to make…be tactile, touch, play and create in 3D. I’ve tried to communicate what I need to say, even if I’m not always sure where that is coming from."
