I first saw a loom in Northern Sweden where they are passed down through the family and are still used today. I then attended weaving classes in Amersham and took up basketmaking and chair seating, gaining City & Guilds, which included a design module. I am a member of the Basketmakers’ Association, the Buckinghamshire Craft Guild, the London Guild of Weavers Spinners & Dyers and the Oxfordshire Basketmakers. I weave in natural fibres, mainly silk, but also fine wool, alpaca and linen.
