Basketry: between culture and nature aims to disseminate current research, events, texts, issues, workshops and exhibitions. It will provide links to related research domains and will invite participation and networking for relevant communities, whether academic, professional or practical. It aims to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the field, thus providing an opportunity of shared resource for and contribution from makers, anthropologists, archaeologists, architects, designers, artists, historians, scholars of material culture  and critical thinking.  The project relates to, and is likely to extend, research undertaken under the auspices of a UK-based, AHRC grant-funded project, ‘Beyond the Basket: Construction, Order and Understanding’, 2009-2011, with significant outcomes and the involvement of an international network of researchers.
