BIOGRAPHY
Originally trained in textiles as a fabric weaver, weaving has been a constant in Hilary’s life. For the last thirty years she has been invested in the art of basket making. Weaving both functional baskets and sculptural pieces, Hilary’s work is harvested from her own willow beds and uses mainly natural materials including hedgerow materials such as hazel, oak and ash, all harvested locally.
