Lissa de Sailles learned traditional crafts from her family as a small child which led her to creative work in dance and costume design. Over the past six years Lissa has been recognised as a leader in the field of contemporary basketry in Australia with invitations to exhibit and teach both locally and internationally. Lissa’s studio and basketry school are in Nowra NSW where workshops and classes are held regularly.
