Baskets plaiting workshop in Warmia, 13/15th April 2018

Straw and wicker – natural materials, common and easily accessible. Just how to weave them? Together with the Serfenta Association, we  invite you to plaiting workshops, during which we will learn traditional plaiting techniques in a beautiful, friendly environment. You will create original items that you will take home with you. This will be a perfect time to recharge your batteries in our Garden of Good Thoughts.

You will learn about one of the basic, traditional plaiting materials – wicker. Already on the first day, everyone, even beginners will make their own products. On Sunday, we will bask in straw baskets and everyone will be different. Based on traditional weaves found in spiral sewing and spiral-loop sewing, each participant will be able to design their own unique basket and … perform it completely independently.

The acquired skills will allow you to continue the adventure with plaiting, which is a Polish, traditional, still living craft. The workshop will be hosted by Paulina Adamska – ethnologist, instructor of artistic handicrafts, in love with everything that is vivid, simple and natural. She is a scholarship holder of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in 2016.
