I'm Cath Kelly and I make incredible willow sculptures, as seen on the Make It At Market TV series. Get in touch if you'd like to commission your own piece.
My name is Cath Kelly and I live in deepest, darkest Cheshire with my daughter and our little dog.
I've long admired willow sculptures for their rustic natural charm, and the fact they are made from a completely sustainable material.
I never had the time or money to have a dabble with willow, though, until the world shut down with Covid. Fortuitously, my lovely Mum had given me £100 as a birthday present with strict instructions to spend it on myself.
So, after a little bit of research on the ever-useful YouTube, my first batch of willow was delivered. You can only imagine my excitement!
After a bit of experimenting, I started making animals and ethereal characters to amuse the Grandchildren, as well as to give as presents to family and friends.
Then, I made a full-sized unicorn and posted a picture on a willow orientated Web page. I was surprised at the positive response!
I also got a message from a TV researcher, asking if I be interested in applying for a new program; "Make it at Market ".
Since then, I've been very busy making - willow is everywhere! I've even got some soaking in the bath (not appreciated by teenagers!). I'm looking forward to a sustainable and productive future!
I regularly update my Instagram page, and I can be contacted through there, or here on my website, should you wish to discuss anything further, or a Commission.
Size and subject are not a problem!
