Sat 28th June 11-4
The Basketry Collective will be at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park Summer Fair on Saturday 28th June for the annual Summer Fair. This is an amazing outreach to the local community and a great opportunity to work on a basketry project together. This year we will be building a community geodome and encouraging people to help us decorate it with willow and rush. There will probably also be an opportunity for children to make small items to take home – angels and skeletons perhaps? Do come and join us if you can.
Sat 16th August-Sun 7th September
In August The Collective will be constructing a willow sculpture as part of the River Art Trail in Earsham on the Suffolk/Norfolk border. The exhibition is being organised by Waveney and Blyth Arts in Collaboration with the River Waveney Trust. There will be a number of sculptures by local artists and a photography exhibition. The site ‘follows part of the river Waveney as it snakes through the water meadows of the Waveney valley.’ Below are photos of the site – more information and photos to follow.
