Contemporary Basketmaker and Willow Artist
BA Hons Applied Arts
Past Gold Award winner - Chelsea Flower Show
I am inspired by nature and love working with natural materials.
I grow willow locally in North Herts and this provides for the mainstay of my weaving. I also use other natural materials such as cane, bark, leaves and found items, and have recently added beeswax to my repertoire - an interesting sculptural material to explore.
Willow workshops are available for most of the year.
I make commissioned work for private and corporate clients. Projects include large sculptural pieces and focal points as well as sculpture, decorative and functional work for home and garden.
I exhibit and sell my work at galleries, art/craft shows and community events, also from my small showroom at the studio. Gift vouchers are available by email.
I am happy to negotiate terms for basketry demonstrations and weaving activities at events. Please email for further details.
Installation and maintenance of living willow structures is also available in season.
Do contact me if you would like to discuss any of the above and you'll be most welcome to visit the studio by appointment.
