A had a great day with these lovely ladies in Dunbar yesterday. They each designed and made a fantastic scarf.

Perhaps you know of a group that would like me to deliver a workshop. Willow weaving or felt- just get in touch.

Beamish Agricultural Show

I had a good day demonstrating and talking to people about basketry at Beamish yesterday.

I will also be taking part in their 'Hands on Heritage' Event on 24th & 25th Septemeber. So come along and have a go at some willow weaving.

To commemorate the Battle of Gallipoli, a battle of huge significance for the people of Hawick, in collaboration with Hawick Museum, I was asked to make two hangings with each of two groups of students at Hawick High School.
