Willow basket making

It has been said that humans have an intuitive ability to weave a basket, just as a spider weaves its web or a bird makes a nest. The baskets I make are made using English willow mainly sourced from the Somerset levels.

The colours are from different varieties of willow and from the different processes that include white, buff, greens and browns also other hedgerow woods such as hazel, dogwood and ash.

    I first ventured into basket making in 1985 by making rough hedgerow baskets as a hobby then I obtained a placement with a Basket Maker in Somerset through the Rural Enterprise Scheme.
