Discover Jenny Crisp – handmade baskets and willow weaving courses using rods of willow grown in Jenny’s own willow bed in Herefordshire.
Jenny has been a professional basket maker and willow grower for 30 years. She grows the willow, to make the baskets, to sell directly to the public.
A keen interest in the environment
After starting her training at Hereford College of Arts, she completed a degree in Woven Textiles at West Surrey College of Art & Design. Jenny had always focused on creating three dimensional woven objects as well as maintaining a key interest in the environment. In 1985 she went on to do a one year apprenticeship. This was with the very accomplished basket maker and willow grower, David Drew. This was the stepping stone to her career as a prominent basket maker.
