Hello I am Nadine Anderson and this is a space for me to record my work as a Basketmaker and as I work from home there will be the odd musings on family life. I have been basketmaking for more than 15 years and primarily work in Willow and Rush with a smattering of Cane and Raffia; my main focus is Rush and we harvest as a family in waterways around Ely each Summer. I make to commission as well as having signature baskets that are for sale direct from my home workshop and the Babylon Arts Gallery, Waterside Ely. A range of 9 products are available at two National Trust properties;Anglesey Abbey shop and the visitors centre at Wicken Fen Nature Reserve.At the latter I teach a number of basketry workshops through the year( check their website for details and booking).I also teach 1-2 people at my home workshop and tailor these to individual interests both in terms of techniques, abilities and materials.I also teach courses at Bottisham and Cottenham Village Colleges,Assington Mill,Cambridge University Botanic Gardens and The Museum of Cambridge.
If you are interested in commissioning a piece or wish to organise a workshop please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
