Learn how to weave filigree baskets
Working with natural materials awakens a sensual creativity in us. Working with willow twigs allows us to combine practical and creative aspects. Our hands get to know the resistance of the material and we discover our talent in forming and creating wickerwork.
Each participant will weave an oval household or laundry basket with base. The base is created by means of a piece of specially shaped wood. The lower 3-rod wale provides stability, while the upper part is woven with a randing technique. The upper rim will have a plaited border and two handles.
Length of the base approx. 45 cm

    Josef Eder

    Josef Eder spent three years learning basket weaving in the 1950s and completed his training with an apprenticeship certificate. He then practised this craft for many years at a basket weaving company until - due to the change of time - this craft fell into oblivion. In his spare time, however, he never stopped basket weaving and even appeared on »Der Letzte seines Standes«, a German television programme presenting old trades. Today he makes his baskets mainly for museums and craft markets.
