I love being a maker and creator and have a passion for heritage crafts. Alongside a lifelong passion for textiles and embroidery, I have added straw worker and artist to my skill set. Working with natural materials and passing on my skills to others through teaching and demonstrations gives me huge pleasure. With Oxfordshire’s long history of farming and my daily walks in the countryside, I get plenty of inspiration from the changing seasons. Over the years I have also developed a fantastic network of other amazing artists and makers in the local area.
