In September, we presented baskets from Poland at the CREATIVA fair in Dortmund. All events this year are marked by uncertainty caused by the constraints related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
More than 10 years ago, Serfenta became fascinated with the unusual Polish basketry material – cattail, also called bulrush, typha latifolia. How is it?
Do you know that we sell baskets of Polish masters to Tokyo? Do you know that we wove in Japan? How to say ”basket” in Japanese and what letter is not in use in Japanese?
Maybe sometimes you wonder what our role is during workshops and other activities. We want to tell you about it today because Christmas time is a perfect time to talk about important people and meetings.
Three years ago, we obtained funds for our master Jan Zogata for a ”master of tradition” project, which allowed young students to learn during nearly year weaving the spruce root. That’s when Bartłomiej Juroszek started his education with the master.
This summer was very intense and eventful for us. We took part in exceptional events and heard so many nice words from you about our work!
Workshops with natural, plant materials are also an extraordinary experience related to touch and smell, a very physical experience. Another strength must be put into bending willow twigs, another into the sewing straw with a special iron needle.
