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 corsetry boning, black willow and elastic. She makes contemporary basketry using traditional techniques.
Sarah’s "Dark Tendril Bag" has won second prize in the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers’ Best Basket 2018 competition; her "Highland Hairmoss Basket" won third prize in the same competition in 2017.
Sarah has a "Crow's Feather Bag" in the Scottish Basketmakers Circle "Woven Together" exhibition, touring in 2018/19.
Sarah is one of the Basketmakers' Dozen.
