AC120: Annemarie O’Sullivan - Basketmaker
Annemarie O’Sullivan is a contemporary Sussex basketmaker, who is elevating the profile of this historic craft and pushing new boundaries with her organic creations. On a half-acre plot in East Sussex, Annemarie cultivates twenty varieties of willow that she works with.

After a one-day basketweaving course twelve years ago, this provided the inspiration for change and was the beginning of an obsession. A five-year, one-day a week basketry training course followed at City Lit, where she learnt a broad range of basketry skills, using a variety of materials.

Annemarie’s designs draw on ancient basketmaking techniques and embrace the arts of weaving and binding that have been used for thousands of years. Part of her work is comprised of simple domestic objects as well as woven forms as site specific installations for galleries and private clients.
