I was drawn to work with willow and using it have a positive environmental impact. I love growing and harvesting my own material in hedgerows and withy beds and sourcing the rest from Somerset.

With it I can make an endless range of things for the home and garden. Many have a nod to our rural agricultural past in their forms and measurements. They are sturdy and strong and serve us well, and once we have discarded them they will decay harmlessly back into the soil.

Passing on these traditional skills in my regular classes at GACC brings me great joy.
