The Worshipful
Company of Basketmakers

Let Us Love One Another


Yeoman Membership is open to practical basketmakers who earn a substantial part of their living from basketmaking or its allied trades, or teaching or organising the Craft. Candidates must demonstrate a high standard of workmanship and skill in the Craft. They must be British subjects, or foreign nationals eligible for the Freedom of the City and qualified and registered to vote in local authority elections.  Yeoman Members are selected by our Trade Committee and invited to join by Court. 

Yeoman Members are entitled to attend our Installation Day Church Service, our Annual Banquet at Mansion House and one nominated Court Dinner each year. They are invited to attend the Trade Dinner in July and to sell their work at that event. They are entitled to use a special logo on their trade literature.

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

Some Yeomen are pleased to accept commissions.​​​​Please contact the Clerk for further information.
