BASKETRY – FUNCTION & ORNAMENT

Basketry: Function & Ornament looks at current practice of some thirty makers from throughout the UK.

It is a survey of a craft that has been somewhat sidelined in times of great technological advances, yet offers a sustainable answer to so much of our modern day throw-away habits.
