Ian wove his first basket in 2008 and immediately developed a passion for craft.  From yurts to canoes, spoons to skis, he prefers to make things by hand from natural materials. Ian built his house in the maple forest, where he lives with his wife, daughter, and son. His latest and largest project is the creation of Creaking Tree Farm, his home garden in which he grows organic vegetables for market.
