Makers

GROFTY, DOLDOWLOD, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LD1 6HD Biography

I've been working with willow for 18 years, weaving and growing it for my own use and more recently selling it to other makers. I have a shop in Llandrindod Wells selling my makes and I supply to a few other shops and galleries in Wales too. I run weaving workshops and can help with growing and harvesting advice on small and large scale plantations. I weave willow coffins primarily and accept commissions as well as selling online. More recently I've been seating in rush cord and seagrass and have also begun to use other grasses in my weaving .  I have a real passion for willow in fact for all types of  woodland crafts.
