Vineyard baskets ready for collection.....


Avui ens ho hem passat fent de models amb unes motxiles fetes amb vímet i olivera que ens han encarregat per un celler.

Today we had fun modelling a commission of willow and olive backpacks before they were collected by a local vineyard...

Nansas at dusk...




Preparant cursos per als propers mesos, aquest vespre hem portat algunes de les meves peces més recents fetes amb la tècnica de les nanses de pesca, al port de Vilanova i la Geltru.

This evening in preparation for forthcoming workshops over the coming months we took some of my recent baskets using the special Nansa fishtrap technique down to the harbour in Vilanova i la Geltru.
