Maker's bio

I have been basket making for over twenty years and have been working professionally and running courses in traditional basketry for the last 16 years. I feel ardently about protecting the knowledge of our traditional rural crafts that are so much a part of our heritage. My background is in arts and crafts. Having studied art, design and furniture making, worked in traditional timber framing and dabbled in stone masonry and stained glass, I then became hooked on basket making.

"A fantastic day spent learning to basket weave! I would totally recommend this craft course. Jane is a great teacher with great knowledge & experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it & her flapjacks & afternoon cake were an exceptionally lovely added bonus! Thank you Jane & I look forward to returning at some point."

Jo Bates reviewed: Fruit basket- course full.

"My sister and I attended this as a birthday treat. We both had a wonderful day and went home with a basket to be proud of (with Jane's help). Jane is a warm and welcoming host and is an excellent teacher-wonderful knowledge, calm manner and very able to help and guide. It really was a relaxing and inspiring day and gave me a real sense of the heritage of basket making. We will go back!"
