Samples of My Work

On this page you will find a selection of baskets that I make regularly. I work mostly with 'brown' or unstripped willow (i.e. with the bark on, for colour and texture); sometimes with white (stripped willow) or occasionally with buff (boiled and stripped willow). Some of my baskets may be available from stock depending on the time of year. Please contact me for availability or for your requirements if not shown here. Visitors are welcome to my workshop by arrangement, or baskets can be sent by post.

All prices are ex workshop and do not include p & p.
