The instructors are Serfenta team and masters of basketry, people who have learned their skills from their ancestors. This way, they’ve got a chance to get into the modern market.

We organize also ethnographic field research for scientific as well as marketing and business purposes.

Our team

Our team is an experienced research group comprised of anthropologists, pedagogues, and documentarians. We work with high-quality recording equipment.

 

Social studies

Ethnography is a study of people’s life, their material, social, and spiritual culture. It examines people in their natural habitats: at home, at work, in their local environment.

Ethnography is also a very effective method of social studies – thanks to it, the acquired knowledge can be based on qualitative data. Ethnographic field research guarantees objectivity, an unbiased description of a situation, authenticity, deepened characterisation, and a comprehensive perspective.

Ethnography and business

The methodology of ethnographic research is focused on field research, including in-depth interviews, personal questionnaires – adjusted to individual needs, and participant observations. Basing on the collected data and analysing the acquired documents, we prepare a report.

In business, ethnographic research results can be used, for instance, to test new products or services.

Because every project is different, the research is priced individually.
