I have been learning, making, teaching and researching for 40 years now. I have belonged to the Basketmakers Association of the UK, and have helped set up the Scottish Basketmakers´Circle and the Northumbria Basketry Group. I was involved in the research project into Scottish baskets which resulted in the creation of the website Woven Communities. My own research led to the publication of a booklet about the fishing baskets of Northumbria. I now live in Spain and am continuing to explore basketmaking.
