Serena Hodgson Fibre Arts

I am  a passionate environmentalist, educator and historian who achieved a Certificate in Permaculture in 2006 and graduated from the Open University in 2008 with a BSc(Hons) Environmental Studies.  After many years working as a psychiatric nurse and primary school teacher I decided to follow my heart and start a business working with willow and wool,  making willow baskets and sculptures, felted, knitted and peg loomed goods.

Over the last several years I have run workshops creating withy structures, both processional figures and living willow, at a number of venues such as; Durham Lumiere, Whitby Folk Festival, Chopwell Woods, Path Head Water Mill and schools throughout the North East. 

I have recently moved to Dumfries and Galloway and am changing the business to suit my current circumstances.  Therefore although I am still happy to make willow baskets, wreaths, sculptures and lanterns I am no longer working with living willow and am concentrating on wool work.

I am happy to work independently or with groups to teach felting, peg loom weaving and willow work.
