Welcome to Ted Bruce Baskets

I have been making baskets seriously since 1998. I was initially self taught but have since studied with some of the best basketmakers in Britain.

Inspired by the beautiful Shropshire countryside in which I have lived and worked for over 30 years, I now work with English willow, some of which I grow myself, to make strong attractive functional baskets for a wide variety of domestic and garden situations.

Whilst placing a strong emphasis on proven traditional techniques, most of my baskets are of my own design, and most are multi purpose. My intention is that they should give good and honest service for many years.

I am a member of the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft and the Basketmakers Association.

Each basket is unique and hand-crafted by me, often using my own-grown willow. I carry a small stock of standard baskets (see Gallery/Shop) and am happy to make baskets to your requirements. To order a basket, or buy from stock (or for any other enquiry) please fill in the form or phone 01691 661217 .
