Bovbjerg Fyr, DK, 2018
Baskets4life: Dimensions.

Tranum Strandgård, Dk, 2019

Vissinggaard, May 2016 and Borgbjerg Fyr, August 2016

In January 2015 Baskets4life with two guests, Mary Butcher og Elisabeth Borch, met for a week at Vissinggaard to start planning an exhibition as part of the events for May 2016. This week began with two stimulating days learning new techniques in a workshop but also learning about the expanded group. We all brought homework of small pieces, 10 x 10 x 10 cm, a category that remains in the exhibition.

Discussion is essential for our working together and our inspiration. Morning meetings after breakfast gave us all opportunities to speak and gain a sense of equality and understanding.

Dimensions was a beautiful exhibition for the Big Willow and Basketry Day!

The group will continue the collaboration about Dimensions in February 2017 in order to place the exhibition in the beautiful frames at Bovbjerg Fyr.

For the latest updates on the event please see www.baskets4life.dk.
