BIOGRAPHY

Anna Liebmann Coldham is a professional basketmaker living and working in Portobello, Edinburgh. She teaches extensively in Edinburgh and beyond.

She was drawn to basketmaking when her children were tiny, whilst living and working at an environmental project in rural Lanarkshire where she became aware of the versatility of willow and was inspired by its zero carbon footprint. She still returns there regularly to harvest her willow.

Anna has a studio at Out Of The Blue’s ‘Arts Factory’ in Portobello, and sells her work from there and at farmer’s markets and arts fairs.  She has also worked on larger scale installations further afield, such as a willow boat bird hide for children, and sculptures on the beach.

For the last few years Anna has been on the committee of the Scottish Basketmaker’s Circle, and is currently their newsletter editor.
