Easter Basket Weaving - Craft Worskhop

It’s hard to imagine a Polish Easter without the traditional wicker basket, which is taken to church for its contents to be blessed on Easter Saturday. During this year’s Easter market, you’ll have the chance to make your own, unique basket at a special basket-weaving workshop, under the eye of an expert craftsman.

Easter Baskets
This workshop will be led by Wojciech Świątkowski, whose family have been weaving baskets for generations. He teaches, lectures and assesses on the subject, and is a member of both the Folk Artists’ Association and the National Wicker and Basket Weavers’ Association. He is also manager of the family business, Wiklina Leszno. During the workshop, we’ll talk about the materials and techniques used in basket weaving and will create our own baskets, just in time for Easter. Workshops will take place at 12:00, 13:30, 15:00 and 16:30. Please contact us to reserve your place.
