This is a must-read for crafts lovers and for those of you who’d like to learn more about the extraordinary spots in Poland.
Every person has a story. Read the stories of basket makers and immerse yourself in the world of the natural life cycle, smelling like willow and straw. Become surrounded by the memories of bygone days and questions concerning our future.
Basketry is not just about baskets – it is a lifestyle and a definition of the meaning of life for the basket makers. Take a look at their work-worn hands and wide smiles! You will be surprised by the variety of materials and tools they use in their craft. Their modern ideas will astonish you as well!
We are happy to present our book entitled On the basketry trail of the Vistula River. This unique book is a description of our ethnographic expeditions and their outcomes. We crossed the basketry trail of the Vistula River to reach out to traditional folk basket makers – join us on the road and discover the marvellous world of basket making in Poland.
The book is accompanied by a CD containing fragments of the most interesting stories and conversations with basket makers as well as regional songs, chants, and anecdotes.
The book contains English summaries of each chapter.
