Crafts MidWales

I am an experienced willow and textile artist making large willow sculptures and living willow structures, as well as traditional and frame baskets. I also work with rush, making hats and mats, and I hand weave on a traditional floor loom to create beautiful, very thick rugs from natural coloured local sheep fleece and fine, natural dyed handwoven scarves.
I run courses in all mediums including hurdles, sculpture, basketmaking, weaving, rush work and living willow.
