About

Annemarie Image.jpg

Annemarie is a basket maker, working on small-scale domestic objects to large-scale architectural installations.

'Using willow, which I grow and harvest, I use weaving and binding techniques, which have been used for hundreds of years to make a range of functional and non-functional work.  I'm interested in seeing the process of making through, from the source to the finished piece. Collaboration is a key part of my work. I love to share ideas with makers from other disciplines. I like to work in a playful way, but the end product always has a high level of craft. I am very grateful to all the makers who came before me, who discovered amazing ways to make and construct. Without them I would have nothing. I love the simplicity of basket making. All I need is a knife and some rods of willow and I can make a basket.'
