I have really enjoyed working in the garden of the amazing Talliston House. Check out this article in the Autumn 2017 edition of the Talliston Times
"A Weaver's Tale part 1" and "A Weaver's Tale part 2" - An article from the April 2015 edition of "The Cambridge Magazine". Freelance journalist Lisa Millard, and photographer David Johnson, visited me on a beautiful sunny day in March. This article is the result of several hours spent wandering round Blacksmiths and talking at length about all sorts of things.
If you’d like to read a bit more about my willow weaving journey, there is a nice article about SalixArts in the Autumn 2014 edition of UK Handmade Magazine
"Welcome to the Willow Workshop" and "Willow Talk" Articles in "Garden Answers Magazine", November and December 2011. These are articles on making Willow Plant supports and Hanging Bird Tables/Trays written by Justine Harding, a freelance journalist who visited me over the summer to try her hand at making her own under my tuition. We had a very successful day, which has been recorded well with clear photos of every stage of construction, and some really lovely pics of the garden.
