Applied Art - Willow

I am a modern basket designer-maker, deeply rooted in heritage skills.

I combine woven willow with woodland materials, making traditional and functional baskets, sculptural woodland baskets and garden plant supports.

My designs are inspired by the woodland coppicing cycle, the willow harvest and found wild materials. Working with nature is an essential part of the creative process. 

I follow the seasons, putting nature first; my work is completely sustainable.

My studio is a timber workshop containing;
-    tools,  such as secateurs, bodkins, rapping irons
-    materials,  such as bolts of willow, found woodland materials
-    work books, images, sketch books, samples, works in progress

Visitors are also invited to browse the barn and working yard which are part of my working environment.

I shall be weaving over the weekends, demonstrating various aspects of my work.
