About Florence Hamer
Florence is a traditional craftswoman, specialising in green wood working, bowl turning and basketry. Florence produces beautiful and functional pieces of wooden ware, made to be used. Using locally sourced British timbers, she works primarily with hand tools, using traditional techniques, often from endangered British crafts. With a passion for keeping heritage crafts alive, Florence also teaches workshops in a range of skills, such as willow basketry, and pole lathe bowl turning. Florence has been supported by various organisations such as QEST (Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust), The Prince’s Foundation and is a recent recipient of a bursary from The Worshipful Company of Turners.
