Mary Butcher open day at the V&A

Mary Butcher is currently one of the artists in residence at the V&A exploring contemporary basketry. She had an open day at her studio in the Sackler Cente on 18 September. It was very interesting to talk to her about the residency and see what is required. It takes up far more time than she envisaged and it can be a lonely experience so you have to network and be proactive. She asks all visitors to contribute to a large wall piece she is making but has not yet had time to make any new work of her own.
