Meet basket maker Lukasaz Jurgowiak who will share his knowledge and demonstrate his skills with willow. Weaving techniques will be demonstrated, watch and learn from this talented craft maker!
Lukasz made his first basket using willow growing wild along the hedgerows in Ireland, remembering the gestures he had seen his father perform. He is continually striving to learn as much as possible from the rich tradition of basket-weaving in the Irish countryside. To complement this event The Dock have invited Airc Damhsa Dance Club established by Edwina Guckian to encourage children & adults in Irish dance, music and song, from 3pm – 4pm. All ages & nationalities are welcome.
