If you dream of your own willow basket, you can watch this film to learn how to weave a green willow basket with a round base. On the basis of this technique, you can weave other shapes of baskets too. The basket is presented by Grzegorz Gordat from the region of Lublin, who has already gained the title of the Master of Tradition despite his young age. You can weave your own basket with him!

Grzegorz Gordat – a young Basketry Master who weaves using top-quality willow. He is an incredibly talented basket maker – there is nothing he couldn’t weave. What’s more, he knows everything there is to know about willow. To make szyszak baskets, he uses wooden moulds. White willow is obtained through the natural process of submerging fresh material in water for a few weeks, which makes it less accessible and more unique. No chemical agents are used in the process of whitening!
