about

Sarah Paramor uses traditional basketry skills to create contemporary basketry, often unconventional bags. Sarah has a taste for the unusual and for the catwalk. She has plaited the local Highland hairmoss to resemble tweed on one side and AstroTurf on the other, though she is just as likely to work with corsetry boning and elastic. Sarah’s “Dark Tendril Bag” came second in the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers’ Basketry of the Year 2018; her “Highland Hairmoss Basket” came third in 2017.
