BASKETMAKERS OF VICTORIA is a group of people who work out of the cottage at Wattle Park Burwood.

They meet there each Wednesday and Sunday to promote, teach and push the boundaries of the art of basket making.

From the traditional to the sculptural, experimenting with any and all materials to see what will evolve.

At this exhibition you will find works using basket making techniques in forms both functional and sculptural but made from materials as diverse as plant fibre, wire or bread wrappers. A few examples are shown below.
