Welcome to Cullercoats Basketry Group Page

Cullercoats Basketry is a newly established group and the first urban basketry group to exist in the North East England.

We encourage you to attend a 1 or 2 day beginners workshop before joining our regular self-help group, as this will help you to become familiar with the basics and complete your first basket. Membership forms for Northumbria Basketry Group are available at our events.

Cost for a self-help group is £10 per session, this includes materials and some tools (secateurs, rapping irons, bodkins & craft knives) for new starters, but it is advisable to purchase your own after the first few sessions. Hot drinks and biscuits are provided but please bring your own packed lunch.

For more information please contact Claire Thompson.

Monthly Friday self-help sessions at North Sheilds.

Time: 10.00 am - 4.00 pm

Venue: North Sheilds Library, Northumberland Square, NE30 1QU Accessible by public transport (Metro and bus) and parking nearby, suggest Bedford Street or Rudyard Street.
