Jess Wilkinson

← Back to Tutors

Jess is inspired by her natural surroundings and this is reflected in her work with many pieces taking on the shape of natural forms. She uses natural sustainable materials such as willow, cornus, birch and many other locally grown woods to recreate organic sculptural forms. Combining traditional basketry techniques with contemporary sculptural design, her work ranges from functional baskets and lampshades to randomly woven garden sculptures.

“Very interesting day and a chance to learn something new (and great food!)”
