My husband Kirk and I have been working with willow since 1998 originally inspired by the sustainability of the craft and the benefits which willow brings to the environment. Kirk grows several varieties of basket willows on two plots located in King’s Cliffe.

We both weave just a mile away from the willow beds at our workshop, The Old Brewery Studios. Here the home grown willows are woven into bespoke traditional and contemporary baskets for homes and gardens. Sue also teaches basketry from the workshop.

We advise you to make an appointment if you would like to visit the workshop. Sorry, The workshop is closed to visitors whilst a class is taking place.
