AMAZING MISTRESS & UNIQUE 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. We prepared it especially for the workshop. Also we are going to use special basketry cattail needles!
Who meet her once – will never forget her! Except of weaving she will teach you a traditional folk’s song from her mother and she will accompany you with a hand-harmonia and folk’s melody. Workshops 2019 – watch and listen mistress Stefania!
Today, less and less people in Poland use this material to weave. It is also not easy to obtain – neither in Poland nor abroad. (See how we cut the material in Poland!)
WHAT WE WILL WEAVE
During the workshops we will learn the material and each participant will create two products, flat form – a mate/ a tray and a handbag. We are going to use wooden forms prepared especially for this workshop.
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. Also for designers who connect different materials and techniques.
