Among all the crafts humankind has practiced, weaving has stood the test of time and is still being done after more than 10,000 years. Artists like Anna are the ones keeping the tradition alive. We wanted to introduce you to her brand – Anna & The Willow.
“Working with a natural material opened up a new world and I consequently went on to learn the different techniques of basketry,” Anna writes on her website. “I enjoy using the traditional skills of basketry and adding my own flare to the process. I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside nestled between the moors & dales. I work with six varieties of English willow grown in Yorkshire & Somerset.”
