Creative with Nature as an idea started about 10 years ago. I was looking for a way to get people outdoors and to use, create with, understand and cherish the abundant natural materials all around us in our natural environment, to value where we live, not just in monetary terms but as a key to our own happiness and as an asset with intrinsic value all of its own that as custodians we should be looking after.

Since then I’ve worked with hundreds of people of all ages and abilities and the statement that is feed back to me most often (at least once every course or session I run!) is just how therapeutic weaving with willow is.

There is something very special about understanding a natural material and then working together to create something beautiful, unique and often functional too.

I work regularly with people from all walks of life teaching willow sculpture and basketry and I weave unique pieces for sale through my Gallery & Workshop in Todmorden.
