Tutor information

I have been weaving with willow for four years now and make all sorts of sculptures from Chickens to Deer, Arches for Weddings, bespoke commissions and run courses to make sculpture. I am a supplier to the National Trust and have recently made Barrington Court a gaggle of geese for their Easter trail as well as creating winter displays for last two years in the grounds. I have several deer displayed at Abbotsbury Sub-Tropical Gardens which appeared at Dillington House this Christmas pulling the sleigh! I currently use Studi0ne at The Craft Centre, Broadwindsor, where I will also run future courses and sell sculptures. My passion for weaving is never ending and I really appreciated going on a course which just opened the door to a complete new creative world. I am learning to weld so I can expand into metal sculpture and hope to use more materials too.
