Pip lives on the Argyll coast. In an attempt to develop an understanding of the language of basketry, she has learnt from various international experts. She works in the tradition of “hedgerow” basketry, making functional and decorative objects from plants grown in Argyll. For inspiration and materials, she focuses on her own wild garden, and the surrounding woods overlooking Loch Melfort. The instinctive obsession that compels a bird to make a particular nest fascinates her.
