First Prize in the Contemporary Category of the XV Fira Internacional Cistell - Basket Making Competition, Salt, Catalonia 2012

I have just returned home from this years International Basket Fair in Salt, Catalonia, having had a fantastic time and wonderful to see so many excellent makers all in one place. The fair is very well organised as a friendly outdoor celebration of our craft by the L'Associació Catalana de Cistellers i Cistelleres (Catalan Basketmakers Association) and the Salt Town Council.

I was honoured and very happy to have won First prize in the XV Fira Internacional Cistell Competition in the Contemporary Category for my newly created work entitled 'Woven Path - New Direction' made with my own home grown, split and painted Willow combined with Rush and Bailer Twine. The Contemporary Category this year was themed around pathways - a theme very close to my heart in much of my work exploring maps, journeys and networks.
