Lindsay (and his wife, Lee) have operated their perennial flower nursery in NE Iowa for the past 20 years. Willow work has followed them during these years as a serious sideline and passionate pastime. Together they grow a sizeable willow patch, offering their willow to craftspeople across the country. Their own willow work combines functional and beautiful baskets with garden and fencing projects. Lee and Lindsay are excited to share their knowledge and experiences about basket making, willow lore, history, and culture with their students.
