The Worshipful Company of Basketmakers’ Charitable Trust – The Walmsley Bursary 2022

12th Mar, 2022


Applications are now open for the Walmsley Bursary. The closing date for applications is 31 March, 2022

The intent of this annual bursary of £3,500 is to provide support to someone keen to pursue a development opportunity which will benefit their basketry practice.

The bursary is open to anyone who makes the major part of their living from basketry, either by making and selling, teaching, curating, writing  or other activities, or a mix of activities that all concern basketry directly.

When assessing applications, the Charitable Trust will be looking for a clear plan which demonstrates a good understanding of the proposed development opportunity and the benefits which it offers.  The development opportunity itself could encompass a wide range of possibilities but must be clearly related to the applicants’s basketry practice.  We ask for a short final report of your findings to benefit the basketmaking community.  This could be a short talk, teaching, or a written report for the BA journal and website and for our own use.

For more information and an application form please write to: Graham Aslet, Clay Hall, Clayhall Lane, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 8LD or email [email protected].
