Traditional Basketry

I produce some traditional baskets, mainly for my own use, although my love is more for contemporary work.  Each piece of work is a one off.  Please contact me if you have any questions or wish to purchase anything.

I am inspired by the world around me, particularly flowers, land and seascapes. I love colour and this often determines my choice of materials and techniques, whereas I often start weaving with only a vague idea of the final form.  I work with anything from cane, rush and willow to found materials, textiles and paper.  I use a range of techniques from stake and strand, plaiting and frame to twining, netting and coiling – producing both functional baskets and more sculptural work.

I  completed the City & Guilds Creative Basketry Course at City Lit in London in 2013 – using the Wildflower Meadows at the Olympic Park to inspire my final pieces.  The exhibition was reviewed on Homebuildlifer  In 2018 I was made a Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers.
