Below we quote some comments made by the participants in these workshops:
‘The man who runs the workshops is a real master in his field, and it’s a great joy to be able to learn from a true master.’
‘Mr Zwawa is fantastic – he puts his heart into what he teaches. Because of his personality and commitment it is very nice to be in his company and to work with him.’
‘The workshops were very interesting. when I get home I’ll use the skills that I’ve just acquired. I’ll be able to make various baskets for myself, big and small (and not only from wicker).’
‘We have learnt some basic techniques which will enable us to make baskets and little wicker wonders. I’ve found basket-making very enjoyable and I’ll try not to forget what I learnt during those three days. I would like to have another opportunity to make baskets with such specialists as the people who ran the workshops keeping an eye on me.’
