Description

Description

Weaving has been a constant, I originally trained in textiles as a fabric weaver
before taking up basketmaking some thirty years ago.
You can see me working and taking about my basketry on the Slowcoast video.

I make both functional baskets and sculptural pieces. After moving to Devon in 1985 I planted
several willow beds
and use mainly natural materials including hedgerow materials, hazel, oak and ash.
These are all harvested locally.
Working with a source of sustainable and renewable materials connects me to the seasonal cycle.
Basketry is a slow craft; growing the materials, cutting, grading, drying, soaking,
gives control but adds to the making time.
I study traditional techniques and find them endlessly intriguing, refined to perfectly
suit the available material and the function. I have been interested in European techniques
associated with willow and wood for a long time and this continues to be an inspiration.
I try to find my own way to use them to create form and texture.
