Lukasz Jurgowiak Willow Workshop

July 9th 2016

10 am – 2 pm

Learn to work with willow and make a platter with Leitrim based basketmaker Lukasz Jurgowiak.

A great workshop for complete beginners who are interested in learning a new skill.

Lukasz Jurgowiak is a basket-maker based in south Leitrim, Ireland. He comes from the North-West of Poland. His first memories of willow baskets are associated with his father who made baskets for family use.

Lukasz only made his first basket after moving to Ireland in 2004, using willow growing wild along the hedgerows, remembering the gestures he had seen his father perform. Developing a growing love for the material he took numerous classes with Alison Fitzgerald. He is continually striving to learn as much as possible from the rich tradition of basket-weaving in the Irish countryside. A keen horticulturist and lover of nature, he is also at present developing his skills in working with native wood.
