Biography:

My baskets and sculptures are handcrafted with locally coppiced willow from Staffordshire along with willow from Somerset. With this I create a diverse selection of willow items ranging from traditional baskets to sculptures and willow hurdle fencing. Specialising in the highest quality customised work I tailor the build to your specification whether it be a basket, sculpture or fencing.

I run courses, demonstrations and talks across the country and have featured on C4’s ‘Kirsty’s Vintage Home’, ‘Kirsty’s Handmade Home’ and Garden Rescue on BBC1. I have been commissioned work by ‘The Worshipful Company of Basket Makers’, Merlin, Nando’s Restaurants, Film & tele production companies, to local produce shops & private commissions.

I feel extremely privileged to continue the craft of basket making and very proud to follow in my father’s footsteps.
Please contact me if you are interested in anything you see or want to book on a basketmaking or sculpture course.
