Within our front garden you will find my basketry shed, better known as the ‘Witch’s Lair’ a wonderful space where I can enjoy creating, with all my materials at hand.
The shed itself was recycled , ‘buyer to remove’ A lucky buy,as it was a hexagon shed with double glass sliding door and 2 windows. Before rebuilding we carefully sited it in the garden so it faced north to take advantage of winter sun and summer shade.
Once it was rebuilt with insulation and lined a cosy space emerged, fitted out with bartered shelving and cupboards through freecycle. Add our old lounge recovered to take advantage of the view.With a utility interior set up it was so much easier to create baskets and get some sewing done, the next challenge was to complete the garden.
