I am a basket maker and artist living in Ireland inspired by our beautiful natural landscapes. I make both traditional, functional work and sculptural, artistic work. I teach extensively, now also online and have a facebook group aimed to bringing basket makers together, to share, learn and inspire each other.

Hanna is a fantastic teacher, so generous and thoughtful. I wouldn't have tried weaving with willow if not for her.

Hanna is an excellent and kind teacher. Her own basketry speaks for itself but if you havent seen it yet, its organic shapes, earthy colours, grown and inspired from the mountain where she lives.

Hanna’s approach to teaching the art of weaving is one of kindness and patience. She places the learner at the centre of the experience and through her skilful application gently guides the leaner to completing their first basket.
