Catching the Memories and Passing on the Skills

This is a project inspired by Great Yarmouth’s Basket Making heritage, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.

In the past there were many basketmakers working in the town to supply baskets for the herring fishing industry. This project aims to capture some of the memories of those times by talking to the people who experienced them, and to pass on some basket making skills to local people, keeping the craft alive.
