Oh wow, I'd love to have taken some basket weaving classes here! How lucky you are to have an event such as Esprit Jardin. And love both captures too (love the 2nd 'action shot':)

De merveilleux nids a mettre dans son propre jardin, son propre balcon ou chez soi.
Des experiences enrichissantes ces ateliers.
P.S. Meme observation pour moi au sujet de Jean Tardieu!!

Those are some seriously gorgeous baskets!

There are many artisans who make baskets. I do not know anyone who uses baskets except for Easter and the odd picnic. Ars gratia artis.

Randy said...

Me too! I would love to learn this.

Dina said...

Wow, I know some birds who would appreciate such ready-made nests.

J'aime bien ces paniers en forme de nids. les lignes rouges , ce sont des morceaux d'osier (?)que les "éleves" sont en train de tresser?

Love the baskets, but what are they doing in the second shot???

JM said...

Not only the baskets, like nests, are lovely, but also the curtain in the background is very pretty.

I do like basket weaving. My friend used to make baskets from Pine needles. A certain type of pine needle extra long. She learned in Alaska. The Native Americans on the coast here did and still do a lot of weaving. Beautiful stuff. MB
