About

Angela is an award-winning modern basket designer-maker, rooted in traditional skills and nature.

She combines woven willow with woodland materials, making distinctive traditional baskets, sculptural woodland baskets and garden plant supports.

Her designs are inspired by the yield of coppiced woodlands, the remarkable willow harvest, and discovered wild materials. She loves the physical work of making.

Angela’s work is completely sustainable, bringing connection to nature into everyday life.
