I’m on Maternity Leave from September 2017- May 2018, but you can catch me (plus new creature in above ‘vessel’ if s/he still fits in it!) at the Great Dixter Winter Fair (25th-26th November), where I’ll be selling work and running a couple of children’s mini-workshops. Check out the ‘workshops’ page for details.
Otherwise see you next summer!

Back-basket (straps to be added)
I’ve been enjoying a few unusual commissions this summer, which has been fun and challenging. Now starting to make stock for the upcoming local winter fairs and events, namely:
- Tunbridge Wells Farmers Markets: 12th November; 10th and 22nd December (9am-2pm, outside Town Hall)
- Great Dixter Winter Fair: 26th & 27th November (details to follow)
- Wilderness Wood Winter Fair: 3rd and 4th December (10am-4pm), Hadlow Down, East Sussex.
Looking forward to meeting old and new customers!
Busy in the workshop again today on another commission for someone’s garden. They wanted an asymmetric, rope-coil pod-like form. Really enjoying making these, although its very physical using all that material… I need a massage now!
Learning basketry is not always an upwards trajectory, or a smooth and predictable continuum, but rather a zig zagging, to-ing and fro-ing, an endless set of puzzles. Hence these two rather wonky things. Hopefully not utterly lacking in charm, but rather far from symmetrical perfection.
