The Basket Cases
This group meets at Fibrecraft House on the first Sunday of every month, with the exception of January. Doors are open from 9.30 and close when the last person goes home. Each person brings lunch to share and only the best coffee is served.
Plant fibre gathered from gardens is the choice of material used with different techniques to create baskets of varying sizes and shapes, some functional and some sculptural. Each person brings whatever he/she is currently working on and ideas and fibre are talked about and exchanged.
Though this is not to be thought of as a workshop, beginners are welcome and will be given advice about possible workshops, should that be sought. An enormous amount of help is available from all members of this happy group.
