Hi, I’m Hanna.

I am a willow artist and basket maker, living in Tipperary, Ireland. Surrounded by nature, on a mountain, on an off grid small holding where we grow our own food and willow for basket making.

When I create my work with willow and teach basket making, I offer space for reconnecting to our ancestral skills and knowledge and allow a deeper connection and an invitation to communicate with and value our natural word. Whether you buy my work, or create your own willow project, my aim is to bring the magic and healing willow has given me, into your world.

“There comes a time to slow down,
a time for simple living.
There comes a time to attune to the rhythm of your hands
There comes a time to cut the sticks and a time to leave them to dry.
There comes a time to concentrate on only one thing
and get lost in the endless repetition.
And then there is a basket, wobbly and new,
made from your own two hands.”

This is what I do,
this is what I live,
this is what I teach.

Free beginners course: 4 step instructions on how to make a small round basket. Making a round base, inserting uprights, weaving a 3-rod wale and finishing the border with a 4 behind 2 border.
