Orkney Grass Basket – Small


A small basket made with grass gathered from our land in the Orkney Islands and wound with willow leaf and fern dyed raffia.

Out of stock

Since moving to the Orkney Islands, the natural world has become a big part of my life and an inspiration for my work. I am constantly looking for new ways to use the plants around me for crafts and to deepen the connection between nature and making.

This little basket has been made with a grass known as Sheep's Fescue. Gathered from our land during summer and carefully dried, before being coiled into this humble basket. It is held together with raffia that I dyed with willow leaves and fern fronds.

The colour of the grass will continue to mellow with age, with the greens slowly fading and the basket becoming more golden in appearance.

It is a perfect little basket to use for nature tables and storing natural treasures.
