Our FROM BARE STEMS exhibition has been hugely successful, drawing large numbers of appreciative visitors to High Cross House. To compliment the exhibition in the studio upstairs at High Cross House, Basketry and Beyond presents
MAKERS AT WORK.
From 10 April this residency will feature basketry in action and focus on the heritage of the craft related to fishing and agriculture in the South West of England. Different basket makers will be working on projects and demonstrating basketry techniques using a selection of materials.
Visitors will be encouraged to ‘have a go’ at weaving something for the interactive balcony installation. We would like to hear about people’s connections with, or memories of basketry and to record this on the ‘Heritage Wall’.
