Craft Demonstrations
Felting - The tradition of felting is handed down by fathers to their sons. Products are made with many layers of wool flattened over each other. After a layer is spread it is sprinkled with water and pressed with a tool. Plain felted products are usually embroidered with colourful ari embroidery.
Willow Basketry - Willow is a wonder material that is at once flexible, lightweight, strong, endlessly renewable and easy to cultivate. Watch the artisan dexterously transform the willow into baskets of different shapes and sizes.
