Today, the OB has many members throughout Oxfordshire and beyond.

These include professional basketmakers and teachers as well as researchers, collectors and people who simply like baskets or enjoy ‘having a go’ from time to time. 

Delivered through a regular programme of workshops, talks, visits, social gatherings and with opportunities to exhibit.

New members are always very welcome.

Alongside our own ideas for workshops Oxfordshire Basketmakers wishes to invite requests from all of its members for future 2025 workshops and beyond.

Perhaps there are particular techniques members would like to learn and/or tutors they would like to see invited to hold particular workshops.

If so then please email the course co-ordinator Angela Edward with your thoughts and suggestions.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Dear members, the committee would like to have your views about whether it would be useful to set up some kind of bursary scheme to help those in financial need to attend the workshops that we organise.  We generally have a good attendance for them but are concerned that there may be members who are having to miss out because of pressure from the cost of living increases.
