My Story...

"I have always had a passion for weaving; I love the repetitive action and yet the need for focus, the symmetry and patterns, the simplicity and creativity."

My weaving journey began when I was given a pegloom as a young girl, and I used local sheep's wool to make rugs and seat covers. 

In 2007 I went on a basketmaking day course where I was introduced to the wonders of willow - I was hooked! 

Later that year as a family we moved to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey), a small island off the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula in Wales where we ran the farm and managed the land for conservation.  During the long isolated winter months I continued to weave with willow harvested from the traditional withy beds and wool from the flock of Welsh mountain sheep that we looked after.

We moved back to the mainland in 2018, and now live near the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula.  Weaving is still an important part of the rhythm of my life.  As an ecologist, another important strand is the restoration of natural habitats, especially wildflower meadows - find out more here."
