Willow with Roots
Willow with Roots are a mother-daughter partnership, with a shared passion for combining traditional basket making and willow growing with innovative and unique design.
As a basket maker and willow grower for the past 30 years, Jenny Crisp (the mother), brings a wealth of experience having devoted her career to mastering traditional willow weaving skills and techniques. Issy Wilkes (the daughter) is trained in designing for theatre, festivals, and events, bringing a unique and imaginative approach to each project. Together they created Willow with Roots, a company steeped in heritage, devoted to high quality crafts(wo)manship, and unabashedly pushing the boundaries of what willow can do.
