The creation of each Belleek Basket tells us a story about the amazon art of Belleek basket making. Basket and Flowers making was introduced to Belleek by William Henshall who came to work for Belleek Pottery in the late 1860s. Over the next forty years he developed the craft and trained the local craftsmen in the necessary skills. These in turn passed their skills down through the following generations to the present day.
