Basketmaking in Cyprus- A 7 day visit from the 12th to 19th May 2018
Booking forms are available now for the Basketry and Beyond trip to Cyprus with Hilary Burns and Geraldine Jones
The trip will include 15 hours of practical basketry experience with Cypriot basketmakers- you will have the opportunity to learn how to prepare and use the local materials to weave some of the traditional basketry, during a number of short workshops to be held throughout the week in various locations around the island.
This gives us a chance to visit and explore many different areas- from Paphos to Larnaca and Nicosia, up into the Troodos mountains and around the coastal villages of Southern Cyprus. Sightseeing trips to interesting and out of the way locations, museums and archaeological sites will be arranged with the help of artist and interpreter, Alexandra Pambouka from Nicosia.
