Polly Pollock Basketry


My work combines basketry and stitched textile techniques which explores themes of homemaking and nurture, damage, protection and repair.

I work mostly with paper yarns which I dye using gentle eco-dyes, often produced from my vegetable peelings, tea leaves, etc, to give soft and gentle colour palettes. I try to ensure my work, albeit in small ways avoids contributing to the mounting levels of waste in the world today.
