My background is in both Education and the Arts. I am a qualified Artist, Teacher & Basket maker. 

I try to work sustainably using materials I harvest myself when possible. When that isn't appropriate I buy from willow growers in Somerset; all of my baskets are hand made by me from willow and rush grown in the UK.

I’m also very keen to encourage people to find pleasure in using their hands to create. Throughout my life I have used my hands to make, to form objects and images, to make clothes and useful objects and to ‘value add’ to my everyday environment. 

I run a number of different classes and workshops and my aim in these is to encourage others to enjoy exploring the qualities of using both willow and rush and to gain a deep sense of satisfaction from making
