Appreciation and thanks to the following:

The Willow

To all the makers who came before me

To those who devised the extraordinary skills and techniques

To the land for providing the willow

To all my basketweaving teachers (so far):

Mary Butcher, Polly Pollock, Jackie Binns, Les Llewelyn, Joe Hogan, Tim Johnson, Sue Chaplin, Alexandra Marks, Louis Grau

To our helpers harvesting the willow

To other willow growers: Musgrove and Somerset Willow

And to my all my students for stretching me and keeping me inspired.
