Cherry Chung
Willow Weaving
Edith Murphy Foundation
Spring | 2019

Renowned willow artist and basket maker Cherry Chung has received commissions from the public sector, local authorities, arts organisations and private companies for her unique weaving skills.

The QEST Edith Murphy Scholarship will enable Cherry to attend courses in Denmark with Ane Lyngsgaard, a master craftsperson of weaving using willow, bark and reeds. The knowledge learned will enhance Cherry’s commercial range of products, enabling her to be more self-sustaining, and also inspire the courses she teaches to adults and children. Cherry is passionate about sharing this accessible and inexpensive craft through both traditional and contemporary applications.
