Using traditional basketry techniques I weave willow vessels, experimenting with shape, form and the incorporation of felt.

I set up Biteabout Arts at my home in rural north Northumberland, to create unique felt vessels, bags and wearable items inspired by organic forms and the colours, textures and patterns within nature, and also to make traditional and contemporary willow baskets and sculptures.
As an experienced teacher I run felt making, basketry and willow sculpture workshops for all ages and groups including schools, where I also deliver a wide range of creative workshops.
I welcome both public and private commissions in willow and felt.
