Basket Maker, Guest Artists
Marie Louise Williams

Marie Louise Williams is an installation artist, sculptor and basketmaker.

Inspired by the strength, suppleness and adaptability of willow, her baskets, wall-sculptures and installations draw on the ability of natural materials to adapt to, support and nurture our lives. Their resilience and flexibility hold space for contemplation and to carry our burdens with beauty, balance and ease.

They embrace our humanity and allow untold expression through rhythm, repetition and infinite variation. The integration and re-purposing of discarded man-made materials signals her hope of our moving towards a way of living that is truly vibrant, sustainable and regenerative.

She also founded and facilitates the running of Wellington Road Art Studios in Oxton, an artist-led community that provides the space, connection and inspiration for local artists to flourish.
