Come and visit us in our working studio in Ogmore by Sea (behind Crafts by the Sea). You can see baskets at all stages of construction from small berry baskets to coffins. Have a go at mini willow projects on Open Studio days, order or buy a basket or just enjoy chatting about the materials we use and the methods of construction. We look forward to seeing you.
