Elvin Crafts

Based in the spectacular western valleys of Eskdale and Wasdale, Helen Elvin is a coppice worker, greenwood craftsperson and Forest Schools practitioner.

Using traditional coppicing techniques, Helen carefully restores neglected Lakeland woods, improving the habitat for wildlife and restoring the healthy growth of hazel and other small native trees.

While helping the local woodlands to flourish, Helen also uses the cut wood to make handles for her beautiful homegrown willow traditional and contemporary baskets.
