A contemporary basket-maker and willow artist whose inspiration comes from nature, landscape, and the human condition. 

The willow Hazel uses is locally grown in North Herts; this provides for the mainstay of her weaving. 

"I also love working with various other natural materials including cane, bark, leaves, found items, and more recently beeswax". 

Hazel makes commissioned work for a variety clients include the Forestry Commission, Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust, J.D. Wetherspoons, and Mammoth Screen Productions. Her work is exhibited in galleries, art/craft shows and community events across the Home Counties, and she has also exhibited work on a Gold Award winning stand at Chelsea Flower Show. 

For over 15 years, Hazel has taught willow weaving and basketry skills in Herts and Bucks, as well as from her studio near Hitchin.
