The Basketry conference offered the opportunity to explore the importance of basketry in human culture from a broadly academic perspective. Members of the research team behind the Basketry exhibition spoke, as well as contributions by guest speakers including the artist Mary Butcher on The Basket Maker in East Anglia, Professor David Guss of Tufts University on Gender Abstractions and Imaginary Journeys, exhibition curator Professor Sandy Heslop on Basketry in the Frame and Professor Tim Ingold of the University of Aberdeen with a talk titled To Build is to Weave.
