I'm a greenwood worker and ash splint basket maker based in Usk, Wales. 

I have been an ash splint basket maker for eight years and use locally sourced timber, from sustainably managed woodlands as part of a natural thinning and woodland regeneration process.

I teach and do demos in Wales and in the South West of England. I am fully insured and have an enhanced DBS check. 

I'm proud to announce that I'm also 3rd place winner of The Worshipful Company Basket Makers 2021 Basketry Competition - For more detailed pictures, click here.
