about

I have been making baskets since 2000 and enjoy growing lots of willow on the croft where I live. My work uses willow with the bark on with as many different colours that will grow here. As well as traditional baskets and creels I enjoy making sculptural pieces which include other woods like alder and birch from the croft. I usually teach once a month at An Lanntair Arts Centre in Stornoway, Lewis. I have taught creel making for the SBC and frame basketry in Hull for Artlink.
