I use mainly Somerset grown Willow supplied by Coates of Meare Green or Musgroves
of Westonzoyland, alongside special coloured varieties which I grow myself (black
or get from other specialist growers.
I have learnt about the use of Willow since 2004 on various short courses at West
DeanCollege with Jackie Binns M,Des, R.C.A. and Mary Butcher. Also with Mary Crabb
at Amberley Museum and Christine Llewellyn at Walberton. I have been a full time
basket maker since early 2013.
I am a member of The Basketmakers' Association which exists to set standards of workmanship
and teaching, but which does not imply endorsement or responsibility of the Association
for a particular maker’s work.
I sell my work at selected craft fairs and events in the South, find details of
these below and will also supply by post.
I am also willing to make items to commission, please enquire if you require something

The Riverside Gallery, Barnes Green, London, SW13 9LP
Showborough House Art in the Garden event , Twyning, near Tewkesbury, GL20 6DN
