The workshop

On the second Sunday in August we will have the chance to learn about one of the oldest techniques that exist and is still used today: basket weaving. In ancient Egypt materials such as radioactive charcoal were used to make baskets and later, wicker, papyrus and other materials were used.

The skilful hands of Pepi, the basket weaver of the Poble, will show you how to work with rattan wicker to make a miniature basket. We must leave the material to soak and then work with it and learn how to convert it into an attractive basket!

Enjoy an amusing and instructive day for young and old!
