I am based just outside of Fressingfield in Suffolk, at Wakelyns Farm but often work out and about around Norfolk, Suffolk and occasionally Essex. As well as some awesome events at the farm, this year I will be running a variety of workshops at Clare Country Park and Bradfield Woods as well. Check the Events page for the most up to date list.
There is nothing quite like exploring the world through the wonderful variety of materials it provides.
Making your own everyday things is important. Joy in connection to past and future through materials, objects and processes.
Making use of odds and ends, giving life to usually considered waste products, making beautiful and functional things for everyday use. Enriching life with handmade.
Embracing the wibbly wobbly and using hand tools as much a possible.
I tend to have particular focus on dyeing, green wood and fibre making with some photography when I need a change but I float around a lot; it is important to use the most suitable medium for the work, not just what you are comfortable with. Hoping to explore paper making and woad growing this year. Who knows what else might happen?
