On Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October, Etal Group hosted a return visit from basket maker John Galloway, renowned for his use of dyed willows. On this occasion we had the opportunity to try out the use of Indigo in dying white willow for our baskets. John also provided an amazing range of richly coloured willows he had dyed for the occasion. The focus was on pattern. We were shown a variety of options and were encouraged to experiment. As ever, it was a fantastic two days, John was an excellent teacher. He was very impressed by the quality of work produced which he said exceeded his expectations and inspired him. He has agreed to come again. Many thanks to Mary Barber for organising it.
