305 Bowers Avenue, Norwich, Norfolk, NR32PP Biography

I hail from Sussesx but now live in Norwich. I started basket making a few years ago as I wanted to learn a traditional craft that I could do during Tudor re-enactments at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk where I am a regular participant. Having made baskets as a hobby for a while I'm now starting to broaden my skillset and knowledge with the hopes of turning it into a full time occupation in the future. I currently specialise in making handbaskets and Peds suitable for a range of re-enactment periods.
