Sarah Paramor lives in Applecross on the west coast of Scotland, and makes baskets in a restored byre (cowshed). 

She has a taste for the kitsch and for the catwalk. She has plaited the local Highland hairmoss to resemble tweed on one side and Astro Turf on the other, though she is just as likely to work with corset boning, black willow and elastic.

Sarah’s work was included in the “Inspired By” exhibition 2016, and her Highland Hairmoss Basket won third prize in the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers’ Best Basket 2017 competition.

Some of her work formed part of the Basketmakers' Dozen exhibition at Craft Central in London in July 2017.

Many thanks to Hub Photography  for the photos and to Takako Copeland for the logo.
