Pleased to announce I have been selected for the clothing and homeware retail company’s New Maker Programme. New Makers are given business advice and a platform to sell there work for the year.
This outdoor art was made with the help of 3D design students from St Leonards Academy. Inspired by Edward Lear’s Nonsense Botany, the sculptures are on display for the duration of the festival.
Branching Out is an exhibition of Emma Harding’s recent ceramic and mosaic work. It features a couple of pieces we have collaborated on together and a few of my more sculptural baskets are exhibited too. 50% of all our sales to Hastings Food Bank.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic I have not exhibited in any exhibitions or galleries so far this year. You can still buy online at my shop here. And now that we are coming out of lockdown you can see work in real life and also buy it at Ethel Loves Me in Rye or Henry Paddon Contemporary Art in Eastbourne.
I’ll be at this fair ……for one day only on the Sunday….. selling my functional, and sculptural, baskets, our willow charcoal and a few other small basketry gifts and decorations.
As part of Mini Wood Fest I will be doing a willow bug making activity 10.00 til 12.00 Lots of other activities too. See poster below.
Black and white baskets are on display at the Hastings Arts Forum for two weeks as part of this exhibition. Woven with white willow and holly for the black lines spiralling round the baskets.
My Sea Creature, inspired by basketry techniques used in willow lobster pots and fish traps, is on display in this pop up exhibition that is happening as part of Art in Romney Marsh’s 2019 installations in several medieval churches on Romney Marsh.
Hastings Arts Forum, St Leonards-on-sea,
I have a few pieces of new work in this exhibition that includes a variety of work by Hastings Arts Forum artists.
There is lots of information, photos, and examples of how baskets and nets were made and used for fishing in this exhibition at Brighton Fishing Quarter Gallery this week. Contemporary work by Mary Butcher, Louise Paul and myself also on display.
