Northumbrian Basket Weavers will again put on a selling display of their basket work at the BOG Potato Day and Green Fair. A huge range of styles, sizes and basket shapes will be available to buy or just admire. These baskets are made by a large number of individuals and their distinct creatives styles are evident in the different designs and colours. As well as baskets, other pieces such as sculptures will also be on display.
If you have always fancied a go at willow work and basketry then have a chat to the people on the stand, who are all experienced basket makers. They will be able to give you details of local groups and courses.
In conjunction with the main display this year there will also be a separate Potato Basket display showing baskets made to designs specifically for gathering potatoes.
