The Worshipful Company of Basketmakers

This annual bursary of £3500 is to provide support to someone keen to pursue a development opportunity which will benefit their basketry practice.

The bursary is open to anyone who makes the major part of their living from basketry, whether by making for sale, teaching, curating, writing or other activities, or by a mix of activities that all concern basketry directly.

When assessing applications, the Charitable Trust will be looking for a clear plan which demonstrates a good understanding of the proposed development opportunity and the benefits it offers. The development opportunity itself could encompass a wide range of possibilities but must be clearly related to the applicant’s basketry practice.

We ask for a short final report of your findings to benefit the basketmaking community. This could be a short talk, teaching, a written report for the BA Journal or e-newsletter and website and for our own use.
