Basketry and Beyond
Basketry and Beyond, a not-for-profit company led by professional basketmakers, Hilary Burns and Geraldine Jones, promotes traditional and contemporary aspects of the craft through research, events, exhibitions, festivals and courses.
Hilary uses traditional basketmaking techniques and greenwoodworking skills, working predominantly with her own willow and materials harvested locally in Devon. Geraldine experiments with basketry techniques to weave sculptural wire forms, whilst using her home-grown willow for basketweaving. Woodsman Felix Kary will demonstrate greenwood cleaving with a hand axe, shaping spoons with knives and gouges, to final finishing.
