Recorded at the Porthmeor Studios – November 2014
Thanks to David Harrison & Chris Hibbert to make this video possible.
David lives in Gweek village at the southern tip of Cornwall. He is a retired fisherman and has a vast knowledge about fishing and the different technique.
David used to hauls his catch of lobsters and crabs from lobster pots, many of which he has hand crafted from willow.
When plastic and steel pots became popular the withy pots gradually died out and became something of the past.
However David decided once again to make a withy pot and as so many people were interested, decided to make more!
Now he is kept busy making small and large pots and all sorts of willow creation.
