I am a co-founder of Basketry and Beyond: basketryandbeyond.org.uk. In 2020 we are organising two courses: Buoy Baskets with Lois Walpole in Helston, Cornwall and Azorean Lunch Baskets with Aida Bairos in Hope Cove, Devon

BUOY BASKETS, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM with LOIS WALPOLE

Three buoy baskets by Lois Walpole

27/28 and 29th March 2020, Helston/Porthleven, Cornwall (exact venue to be confirmed soon)

Course cost £180

Lois Walpole will be bringing her recycling and basketmaking expertise to West Cornwall where she will be leading this 3 day exploratory workshop.

She will be guiding you through the entire process of developing utilitarian and/or sculptural forms and structures from found materials gleaned from local coves and beaches.

The course will include

  • a preliminary beachcombing session
  • an inspirational introductory talk
  • examination, selection and preparation of materials
  • experimenting with a variety of basketmaking techniques  
  • development of individual projects

Lois trained in sculpture, basket making and product design. She is a designer and maker of baskets, furniture and art works. Her work combines the techniques and often the forms of basketry with the detritus of consumerism and the natural materials of her immediate environment.

Her most recent touring exhibition is titled ‘Weaving Ghosts’, based on materials found washed up
on Shetland beaches.
