Maker's Quote

Maggie Smith’s work is wonderfully sculptural, speaking to the sophistication of contemporary basketry, and the skills of makers. The City Literary Institute basketry course Maggie graduated from is the last vocational training of its kind in the UK. Looking at Maggie’s work, I fear we’re at risk of losing this unique craft.
