MATERIAL
You’re welcome to join the exceptional MASTER WORKSHOP with the master Stefania Suchora (aged 80). She is one of the leading basket makers working with cattail (bulrush) in Poland. She has been practicing this traditional profession virtually forever. She mows and prepares the material and weaves using wooden forms.

Today, less and less people in Poland use this material to weave. It is also not easy to obtain – neither in Poland nor abroad.

WHAT WE WILL WEAVE

During the workshops we will learn the material and each participant will create two products, flat form and a bag or a hat or a basket.

WE ENCOURAGE THE DESIGNERS TO JOIN

Basketry workshop is a great way to expand the field of professional experience and interests for architects, designers and all who want to enrich their craft skills.
