8 Main Street, Wardy Hill, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB6 2DF Biography

I have been a full-time Basketmaker for more than 26 years with willow, rush and cane as my main materials. My family harvest rush in waterways of Cambridgeshire and grow willow in the fenland of Ely. I am a Yeoman Basketmaker to The Worshipful Company of Basketmakers. I teach Basketry workshops from my home studio accommodating small groups, so the learning experience is a calm, mindful one. I also teach Pilates and Yoga and am a Breath Coach.I have a core collection of baskets that I make on a regular basis, but also weave commissions for private individuals and film production companies. All designs are my own and I love to create functional baskets and vessels with traditional techniques that are pleasing to look at and use.
