Angela Firth – Bojorrow Baskets

Higher Bojorrow, Garras, Helston, Cornwall, TR12 6LN Biography

I moved to Cornwall in 2008. Initially we lived in the beautiful village of Coverack, and it was here that I went on my first willow weaving course where I made a rather wonky fruit basket - I was hooked.  In 2011 we finally moved into our forever home where I’m fortunate to have land enabling me to establishmy own withy beds - I love that I can harvest and put to use beautiful willow grown within a few hundred meters from my door.  I make a wide variety of baskets and structures and love both the structured patterns of traditional baskets and also free flow sculpture.
