I first learned to weave cane around 40 years ago, at a night class at the old Hagley High School in Christchurch. I love how flexible, durable, and lightweight it is, and the variety of shapes you can achieve when using it. Everything I make has an interesting texture and shape, and nearly everything also has a useful function. Currently I'm inspired by organic forms and the combination of traditional rattan cane with more unconventional materials.
