Basketry: Rhythm, Renewal & Reinvention
September 25th 2021 - January 9th 2022
‘The exhibition Basketry: Rhythm, Renewal & Reinvention is a visual slice across contemporary UK basket making. There are some 35 maker’s work spilling over all three galleries at Ruthin Craft Centre. The exhibition shows what is being made today – and by whom – across basketry’s beautiful variety of shapes, materials and weaves.’ Jane Audas, August 2021
Alongside the exhibition there will be a series of events including Dr Stephanie Bunn’s Forces in Translation project which looks at basketry, social anthropology and mathematics, and the group will be in residence at Ruthin for several days in October. There will also be an area in Gallery 2 focusing on several of the Heritage Crafts Association’s endangered and critically endangered baskets. Featured makers include QEST D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust Scholar Annemarie O’Sullivan and QEST Scholar Mary Butcher.
