The NBG will be 10 years old in 2017 and we plan to recognise this milestone by holding an exhibition. It will tell the story of NBG's development by showing how our member's skills have developed and will give a clear message that basketry is accessible for complete beginners. Our initial venue is to be the Durham Dales Centre at Stanhope in Weardale, County Durham. The exhibition will take place on the early May bank holiday (Saturday 29th April to Monday 1st May 2017) and we hope to tour it to other venues around the Northumbria area later in the year. We currently have an extremely small organising group so if anyone would like to help in any way, whether with the planning beforehand, or providing transport or setting up at the venue, or with any other of the very many tasks that will need doing, we would be really delighted to hear from you. Please email us at or use the contact form on this website to get in touch.
