Log basket…

Just finished this log basket commission. White waling and brown double French randing. All the willow used was black maul. It was a pleasure to make as all the willow behaved beautifully for a change, not a single snapper. 😊

Hopefully it will be delivered and full of logs before we get any snow.

New classes now up on the courses page.

Moses basket…

Happy New Year, hopefully it’s still not too late to say that. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday. I think I started mine a bit tired and ended it more tired than ever! I always love spending time with friends and family though that’s the real blessing of time off.

My first job for 2019 was to make this Moses basket yesterday. I have a lady coming to the workshop next week to make one for her baby, due in a few months. I’m really excited about this project as I simply adore babies and children of all ages.

I am also in awe of my student and her can do attitude. She hasn’t made a basket before but is undaunted by this project. I’m sure I’ll be posting a photo of her basket next week. Watch this space.

This weeks classes…

This weeks classes. Lovely women in all the groups. On Wednesday I had a really relaxing morning with three ladies at the simply handmade studio in Sudbury. Today the Norfolk Small holders Training group. These folks are very hands on and make me smile when they strike up conversations about their goats and sheep or spinning wool. Thank you to everyone for making me so welcome.
