Basketry, Horticulture and Care, with Jakki Weaden (08-02-21)

In this episode, Hannah Mumby (AHSW General Manager) is joined by Jakki Weaden, a former nurse from Bristol who talks about her journey from working in nursing into now building a creative vocation in basketry-making. They share a conversation about the parallels between basketry, wound care, and horticulture; the metaphors associated with care and weaving; and the resourceful creative outlook needed to work in nursing.
