I design textile basket kits and patterns using natural renewable materials.
My designs use traditional basketry techniques inspired by the materials, the natural world and historical references. The baskets are made using mostly jute, sisal, Manila hemp, flax and cotton.
Hand weaving, twining, coiling and binding are the methods I use to weave the baskets. The kits have all the materials needed to make the baskets and only need the addition of dressmaker pins, scissors and a needle to complete. They are suitable for beginners and upwards.
The packaging I use is recyclable or reusable. Fully illustrated printed instructions with real time sequence photographs make the kits easy for you to follow.
