Waveney Rush on the Norfolk Broads

Last week was a varied time of shoots… on the Norfolk Broads, at Olympia in London and then in Tottenham in North London.. Couldn’t really get much more of a mixed bag than that!

The images below were from a shoot at Waveney Rush for BBC Countryfile magazine. Having finished an illustrated feature for the magazine I was then commissioned to also produce a ‘how to’ guide for making a drinks coaster from rushes collected from the Broads… it was easier to shoot than to make..but I do quite fancy having a go at this…

Check out the July issue of the magazine for the full feature and how to guide

In the meantime, if you fancy a visit to a real herirtage industry, I would recommend a call to Waveney rush to see if you can visit the workshop, which has to be in one of the best locations I’ve ever seen!
The company make wonderful matting, baskets and other pieces… stunning!
