About

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 20 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 1-4 people at my home workshop and tailor these to individual interests both in terms of techniques, abilities and materials. I also teach courses at Cottenham Village College and Cambridge University Botanic Gardens. I am a Yeoman Basketmaker to the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers and an active committee member of The Basketmakers’ Association ,organising the Spring and Autumn courses. I am also a member of Cambridge Open Studios.

  1. I’m organising a food show at Sacrewell Farm, Thornhaugh and want to showcase all the wonderful businesses and local produce our area has to offer. For that reason, I would absolutely love for you to exhibit with us. If you are at all interested I can send you some more information.

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you,

    Evey
