I make a large range of different style baskets. Some are traditional baskets that are passed down through generations.
I make alot of baskets for many uses mostly to do with fruit and vegetable storage or collecting.
I also experiment with more artistic baskets.
Making baskets gives me a huge sense of well being and mental clarity.
For me, being an artist allows me to express my inner creativity. It is a very personal journey.
I am an artisan basket maker

I teach 2 regular weekly basketry classes and occasional day courses.
I have just joined a new project called The Fathom Trust which is all about mental and physical healing through arts and crafts, I will be teaching day workshops.
