Basketry workshop

Learn the art of basketry
On Wednesdays August 7th - 14th - 21st from 10.00am to 12.00pm or from 1.00 to 3.00pm at the Maison de la Forêt in la Tzoumaz.

Basketry is known since old times. Many of us may remember an elderly doing basketry in front of his house. Basketry objects are still appreciated, machines can never replace the artwork of a human. Materials used to braid are manifold: willow tree, dogwood, ivy, clematis, brambles, etc. Each of these plants allows us to create originial objects.

Nicole Yersin will show you how to make a basket, or other object with what nature has to offer. Open to all, this workshop will allow you to learn an ancestral technique.
