About Willow and Crafts

Hello, I am Jacquie from Willow and Crafts based in Southampton Hampshire, U.K I create a wide range of willow sculptures and related works which are available to purchase, I also accept commissions including creating public art pieces as well as offering a variety of workshops directly to the public. I have been experimenting and creating with different art forms for many years I first discovered my interest in creating with the willow at a music festival soon after I started my art workshop business in 2007, back then I was teaching lots of different arts working predominantly with the community. As time went by my love of working with willow took over and led me to provide many different large-scale art participation projects including coordinating and running lantern festivals including running Winchester Cathedral Lantern festival events for two years. In recent years my focus has been on creating and selling my work, offering workshops both directly to the public as well as providing art projects in conjunction with organisations both private and public and creating bespoke public artworks. In addition to the public side of my practice, I have undertaken a number of art residences including being awarded a Developing Your Creative Practise grant from the Arts Council which enables me to undertake an artist residency at Tudor House Museum and Gardens on Southampton, During this time I was able to experiment and develop my practice working with additional materials including, other a range of natural materials including, willow bark, rush and a variety of recycled materials. I am interested in undertaking new projects that are site-specific or and link to a theme
