About Cradle To Grave
WORKING WITH SOMERSET WILLOW IN DORSET
Cath has followed a journey into the intricacies of basket making and woven materials from cloth to entire buildings (ie: Yurts) This has lead her through bringing up three children whilst living a simpler life on the road, through living on low impact settlements to her present position as an artisan basket maker with a passion for sustaining our rural crafts.
This she is achieving by constantly searching for new ways to use willow, which is a plant that binds the very soil of the Somerset levels. She was taught to make baskets in the early 90's whilst living in a yurt and became obsessed with weaving and has been doing it ever since.
