Maker's bio

I make my baskets using hand cut materials from the Norfolk countryside. Naturally sustainable, cut, selected & crafted by hand. Basket making using natural & local materials is an ancient tradition & an environmentally sound solution to a sustainable future. In Norfolk there is great beauty in the hedgerows at any time of year; I aim to capture that beauty in my baskets. Hedge basket is the way that I describe my own basket style; rustic, shapely, colourful, useful & beautiful.

Paula and Martha reviewed: Introduction to English willow basket making- Weekend course

"My daughter and I enjoyed our basket making weekend. We left appreciating the skill, time and attention needed to make such baskets. However, Jonathan was most patient and scaffolded us all in the group very well. It was a friendly environment and we recommend the weekend. Tip -take more food than you normally eat as your brain works very hard! You definitely need a cushion or two also. Thank you Jonathan. It was a pleasant family memory for us both 😊"

"Really enjoyed the course, despite some ups and downs I’m chuffed with the end results…more physical than I imagined.. could have done with bringing an old cushion!"

Mary Hansford reviewed: Introduction to English willow basket making- Weekend course

"Had a fantastic weekend basket making with Jonathon, he had a great energy that was infectious and made everyone relaxed and open. I found his method of teaching really great as it can't be easy supporting a room of novices, but he managed it with ease and everyone was very happy with our end results. Can't wait to do some more."
