I became an apprentice basket maker at the age of 17 in 1985. My day started at 8am and finished at 4pm Monday to Friday for £50 a week. This was in the largest and most well known basket making company in Brighton. I became a full time professional after two years of being tutored in the traditional way. I could produce English bespoke willow baskets such as Storage, Pet, Picnic, Log, Laundry & Gift baskets.
To keep myself on my toes and to not become complacent, I like to experiment with new shapes.
This heart shaped basket opposite was my last personal challenge. I thought this was a great iconic symbol to create, as it's an instantly recognisable shape. My objective was to make this with really crisp, defined, curved lines. I am happy with this completed product and to have achieved my desired result.
Please contact me to discuss your own design requirements and measurements. To fit that unusual shape, you cannot find anywhere else.
For that piece of mind with no unwanted surprises. I pre-calculate slight discounts on larger orders within the quote.
+/- 1" = 2.5cm Tolerance on all basket sizes, This is a standard given amount, but the more experience the basket maker has the smaller the margin will be.
