Sarah Hatton weaves using a small selection of the twenty varieties of willow grown on her smallholding in Caerphilly, which gives her a sustainable supply of willow. Using such a small range of willow and growing it herself has given Sarah a full appreciation of the lifecycle of a willow. This showcase presents a range of baskets showing Sarah’s journey of basket making. She has included traditional welsh baskets as well as contemporary baskets using her favourite weaves,colours, shapes and techniques. Sarah Hatton was winner of the Llantarnam Grange Art Centre 'Craft Showcase' award at the 2015 Made by Hand Exhibition in Cardiff.
