About Cornish Craftwork

Cornish Craftwork

We are Anne and Alan Thomas, basketmaker and woodturner respectively, creating beautiful Cornish Craftwork from rush, willow and wood.

Anne needed a plant support for her garden so attended a local workshop to make her own from willow – and there started a love of willow weaving. Rushwork came later, a fabulous material to gather from source, dry, store and then weave. Weaving is both creative and therapeutic, individual and communal, from working quietly in my workshop to communally gathering rushes in a way as old as history itself; to passing on these skills to young and old and seeing the excitement and delight of having created something beautiful for themselves. Having a one-time student – Sue Dale – now working beside me is a joy. Weaving can be done with many materials but I choose willow and rush – sometimes crocosmia, iris and other materials found in my garden.

Alan saw a woodturner at a local fair and thought it looked a fun thing to try. Big mistake! After attending a two day course, a workshop soon followed and the woodturning bug bit deep. Selling at Farmer's markets and doing some production work helped to hone the skills and after several years, gallery sales, teaching and demonstrating followed. Woodturning is first and foremost a fun and absorbing craft. " Taking a wonderful natural material and making something from it is very satisfying in itself and if others appreciate what I make I feel a great sense of accomplishment".

Our home is full of our own crafted pieces, both beautiful and practical. Wooden light-pulls, door knobs, spoons alongside stunning wooden bread and fruit bowls, platters and pieces purely for the joy of having them. Willow and rush baskets – for sewing and knitting, kitchen and bathroom, garden supports and baskets for so many different needs. Handcrafted items made from natural, raw materials are practical, tactile and simply beautiful.

Browse through our carefully created collections for items both practical and purely decorative, for gifts for others and for yourself.

    These are brilliant. When the rain stops they'll be hung outside, for now they are inside filled with scented flowers from the garden. Beautifully made, superbly packaged, and great communication from maker. Very many thanks!

    These skilfully crafted lanterns look amazing after dusk holding a light stick or battery operated led light string and quite honestly they look terrific just hung about the garden at any time of day! Wonderful purchase, great service, very many thanks!
