Helen Jackson Shoulder Bag

I have an appreciation of times when buying, selling, carrying, and measuring were reliant on a basket be it homemade or bought from a professional basket maker; life depended on them.

Working mostly with willow and growing a large proportion of my own, there is great satisfaction in planting it, watching it grow, harvesting, weaving and then using the end product, a beautiful yet functional basket.  I use traditional techniques whilst exploring new ideas in shape and form, developing my own designs.
