The Man From Snowy River Stockwhip

Of all the whips I have made, this was the most difficult and is my favourite. It is based on "The Man From Snowy River", the iconic Australian poem written by AB Patterson and has 32 strands in the thong and 72 strands in the handle. The patterns on the handle are all inspired by a line in the poem, each telling a part of the story, with the title plaited into the thong.  It took around 300 hours to design and make. This whip won several awards in 2016, including Champion Stockwhip at the Australian Plaiting Championships and Most Outstanding Entry at the Australian Plaiters and Whipmakers National Plaiting Championships.
