Barry Noyce is a traditional basket weaver and for the last 20 years makes everything from cradles to coffins from his homegrown willow in North Tipperary.
Barry's interactive demonstration will show to construct a creel, Ireland's indigenous basket which was used throughout the ages for carrying a variety of items such as turf, seaweed, wool, dung and vegetables. These versatile baskets use a unique weaving technique with strong rods. Barry will demonstrate this unique skill and participants can try their hand at this unique craft form.
