“There comes a time to slow down,
a time for simple living.
There comes a time to attune to the rhythm of your hands
There comes a time to cut the sticks and a time to leave them to dry.
There comes a time to concentrate on only one thing
and get lost in the endless repetition.
And then there is a basket, wobbly and new,
made from your own two hands.”
This is what I do,
this is what I live,
this is what I teach.

About

Have you ever felt you wanted to do things differently?
Like starting all over again?
Like stepping outside the rat race and walk at your own pace?
On your own terms?
That’s what happened to me.
Hi. My name is Hanna Van Aelst. I am an artist and basket maker.

I live in a most beautiful and wild place in Tipperary, Ireland, with my husband and three children, on a wonderful permaculture off-grid smallholding where we grow our own food, firewood and willow. We have our own chickens and are fortunate to be in the company of five donkeys and two mad dogs.

Workshops

Because of corona restrictions, all workshops are still closed for 2021. I am hoping to start again but as of now can’t yet set any dates.

The workshops are relaxing, full of fun and cover a range of basket weaving techniques. They offer space to allow yourself to be immersed in the weaving and learning new skills.
