Weaving through the river
Published 23/06/14



A NEW exhibition at the River and Rowing Museum promises to challenge the spectator to view the craft of basketmaking in a different light.

Flow, a collection of work by Oxfordshire basketmakers, opened at the Wall Gallery last Friday. The work takes its inspiration from rivers, both literally and figuratively, and as well as traditional items the collection shows how materials, traditions, technique and experience flow through contemporary work.

Spokeswoman Lorraine Gilmour said: “Basketry has appeared in every culture since humans first started making things.

“This exhibition shows examples of many universal techniques such as plaiting, twining and stake-and-strand.

“These still form the basis of contemporary basketry, but with the rapid increase of globalisation, materials and techniques are constantly evolving.


“Today’s basketmakers therefore have a wealth of choice and opportunities to experiment in a more personal way, but always with an eye to the tradition.”

The exhibition runs until August 26. For more information visit www.oxfordshirebasket makers.com
