Łucja Cieślar

The entrepreneur, the manager, the craft instructor, also the SM and sales specialists. She believes in the power of connections – people’s needs, with cultural heritage and a modern market. She loves to transfer the knowledge and skills from the older generation of Polish basketry masters – through a modern touch and look for craft in Serfenta – to new generations, new ideas. Transmission is the future. Her favourite work is with the great Polish botanical material – cattail, typha latifolia, rogożyna – which almost passed away as a basketry material. Now she is leading a cattail workshop for designers – material, tradition, experiments.
