The basketry workshop for children is an amazing adventure!

Kids will learn how to make a simple woven object: a fish, a little basket, a tray, or a crazy ball! They will work with a natural, lovely-smelling material and create their own work of art.

The workshop is an excellent occasion to become familiar with basketry and learn its secrets – kids will have a look at various baskets, interesting materials and shapes. This is also an exciting lesson of biology and Polish culture!

The workshop can be organised during holidays or on the Children’s Day. Children and parents can come to a weaving class during picnics or school fair. It is also great for making a little gift for Mother’s Day!

Basketry is not only about baskets! This is also a great means of artistic expression. The materials we use really boost imagination. We’ve already made a willow moufflon, bike, swing, and even a human-shaped couple! We’ve also organised an open-air workshop “On the border”. During this type of workshop you can simply unleash your creativity and weave something absolutely unique. This form of work makes room for creative experiments.

You can order a woven sculpture in the form of workshops or a ready-made object.
