Do you treasure a beautiful stone as a reminder of a walk or a vacation? Bring it to the festival and make it super special!

 

In this basketry workshop you learn with which knots and windings you can emphasize and beautify the character of the stone. These knots and windings have their origins in Japanese basketry and ikebana.

You need to bring your own stone or another special object.

 

Esmé Hofman (The Netherlands) is a traditionally trained basketmaker and learned the foundations of the craft at the German basketry school.  As a modern craftswoman she looks beyond the borders of this traditional handcraft. This gives her the freedom to explore creative possibilities, and generates other ways of making. Her techniques and materials now vary from the traditional to the contemporary using natural stems, leaves, bark, wire, plastics, vellum, paper and lots of colour. She is an internationally renowned and award winning crafts master, working for designers, artists, museums and private costumers.
