Let Us Love One Another

The Worshipful Company of Basketmakers

Yeomen

In 1994, the Court decided to introduce an additional class of membership -Yeoman members. To date, the company has twenty two Yeoman members. Yeoman Membership is open to British subjects, (or foreign nationals eligible for the Freedom of the City and qualified and registered to vote in local authority elections) who are practical Basketmakers involved for a substantial part of the time in earning a living from Basketmaking or its allied trades, or teaching or organising the Craft. Candidates are required to demonstrate a high standard of workmanship and skill in the Craft.

In common with several other Livery companies, the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers has sought to re-establish links with its founding craft and trade. In 1994 led by Prime Warden Anthony Meeson, the Company introduced the new category of Yeoman Member.

Yeoman Members are entitled to attend the Installation Day Church Service, the Annual Banquet at Mansion House and one nominated Court Dinner each year. Yeoman Members are invited to attend the Trade Dinner in July each year and to sell samples of their work at that event.

The Company encourages Yeoman Members to apply for the grant of the Freedom of the City of London. Yeoman Members may also seek sponsorship to the Livery; upon being 'Clothed' in the Livery they are accorded the honorary title of 'Yeoman Liveryman'


In 2009 under Prime Warden Graham Lewinstein, the Company produced a logo for use by Yeomen Members, to denote their rank on their trade literature

Some of the Yeomen members are pleased to accept commissions and for convenience all their contact details are listed below.
