Description

Straw working has always been a regional craft with its roots in the countryside, since practitioners originally needed to be close to the raw materials and a market for the goods. Named an endangered craft by the Heritage Crafts Association, there are fewer than five professional practitioners of the art form.

  • Sold as a set of 2.
  • Intricate pictures depicting the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich and a medieval Welsh castle.
  • Framed and glazed under glass.
