The fourth of Northumbria Basketry Group's Tenth Anniversary Touring Celebration and Exhibition events is now only a few weeks away.

The event is at the Beamish Museum, Co. Durham, DH9 0RG and will feature an exhibition with a wide variety of baskets, sculptures and other pieces created by our members using willow and other materials, along with replicas of traditional baskets used in different regions of the British Isles.

There will be drop-in willow taster sessions for all ages taking place so do come along and have a go. A recently published book written by member Liz Balfour, 'The Fishing Baskets of Northumbria', will be on sale at this event. See image below.

We shall also be researching traditional British baskets and warmly invite anyone who has baskets that have belonged to family members for a long time to bring them to the event for us to photograph. For more information see the events section of the website.
