Hello and welcome,
There is something quite magical about taking natural material and creating something new.
I was one of those children who entertained myself making mud pies, inventing rose petal perfume, building dens and creating mini masterpieces from anything that I could find it. Being both creative and practical has always been useful and a skill that I took for granted. My home was covered in murals and I was always making gifts for friends and making lots of things for my home etc
My first experience of making things from willow happened at least 15 years ago when I made some small willow items at a music festival it, I soon realized that I had a natural affinity with the material.
I now create my own sculptures from my small studio in my garden, I also offer a range of workshops and activities on projects. When I find the time I also paint and experiment with other media
I also enjoy collaborative work and bouncing ideas and am happy to consider working on projects that interest me.
