Basketry : Function & Ornament

July 20 - October 13

A truly ancient craft, Basketry still adheres to its basic principles and methods of construction, albeit in myriad forms. Contemporary practitioners combine materials and techniques, using both traditional and modern ways of making to spectacular effect. Basketry : Function & Ornament looks at current practice of some thirty makers from throughout the UK. It brings together functional vernacular work from various parts of the country, alongside pieces that are sculptural and ornamental. It is a survey of a craft that has been somewhat side-lined in times of great technological advances, yet offers a sustainable answer to so much of our modern day throw-away habits.

Curated by Gregory Parsons.

Thirty selected makers, including: Lise Bech, Mary Butcher, Mandy Coates, John Cowan, Jenny Crisp, Laura Ellen Bacon, Lizzie Farey, Rosie Farey, Eddie Glew, Joe Hogan, Tim Johnson, Sarah Paramor, Maggie Smith and Lois Walpole.
