Annemarie is a basket-maker based in East Sussex, UK. She mainly works with willow and coppiced wood and grows about 20 different types of willow for her own basket-making.
She started to pursue basket making as a craft after studying the craft at City Lit in London, which is where she now teaches. In addition to teaching, she makes and sells both domestic baskets and sculptural work internationally.
With support from QEST, Annemarie has arranged to visit workshops in the UK and France to develop advanced skills including scalloming and fitching, and to learn two baskets, Cyntell and Perigord, to an excellent standard.
