About the tutor

Annemarie O’Sullivan is a basket maker who works on small-scale domestic objects to large-scale architectural installations.

‘Using willow, which I grow and harvest, I use weaving and binding techniques, which have been used for hundreds of years to make a range of functional and non-functional work.  I’m really interested in seeing the process of making through, from the source to the finished piece.

I am very grateful to all the makers who came before me, who discovered amazing ways to make and construct. Without them I would have nothing. I love the simplicity of basket making. All I need is a knife and some rods of willow and I can make a basket.’
