About this event

Join Heritage Crafts in conversation with Dave French and Sarah Ready, withy pot makers.

Devon-based Dave French is a fifth-generation withy pot maker, using willow rods (withies) to make the traditional crab and lobster pots used throughout history all around the British coast with regional variations that made them instantly recognisable. Up until a few years ago the craft seemed headed towards extinction, with pots being made solely for decorative or historical interest. But now, helped in part by Heritage Crafts, Sarah Ready is not only learning the skill of making withy pots, but fishing with them in a traditionally sustainable way that points to a true resurgence.

The session will take place on Zoom and attendees must register in advance via Eventbrite. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit questions in advance.
