Big Willow and Basketry Day - Revival and Final


Eva Seidenfaden and Baskets4life planned a large event at Vissingggaard Denmark the 7th and 8th of May 2016.

We had planned a varied programme with workshops, exhibitions, auctions selling the baskets from Vissinggaard Basketry Museum, demonstrations with wide range of materials and techniques by Danish and foreign instructors and many other activities.

On Saturday, we offered 8 different workshops of which the 5 are instructors from Baskets4Life and 3 are invited teachers.

Workshops took place from 9 - 16, then the opening of "Dimensions", the new exhibition from Baskets4life, and finally a grand dinner with varied entertainment. Our wish was to provide a rewarding and fun day with focus on the professional approach to basketry and share our enthusiasm for weaving in multiple ways.

Sunday was a day open to the public with auctions selling baskets from Vissinggaard Basketry Museum, stands with baskets, tools, extraordinary materials, exclusive Danish crafts and other exciting stands.

It became an amazing event with huge support from family, friends and guests from near and far. All the baskets got new homes.

The income from this large event was spent on Baskets4Life big Africa trip in September-October 2016. See more about this trip on Baskets4Life.
