Materiality and making

Working on the elements of Salthouse structures I am becoming entranced by the materials and techniques, colour and form of the willow as it takes shape.
The smells and humidity, the almost industrial repetitious aspect of making multiples has the feel of cloth weaving. The other allotment holders are making comments and showing interest in what I am doing.
The alloment shed is getting crowded, the space feels very small now.
