the 1st October 2018. Famous for its excellent palm basketry museum - the Museu de la Pauma and the annual festival of vegetable fibres in early August, this village is one of our favourite spots and the day offers a real chance to see some Catalan countryside.
Following the success of last years palm workshop with basketmakers from the village we have decided to repeat the day out with two workshop options - weaving a braided pot stand or a special palm brush using a special twining technique - see below:
Doesn't everyone collect beautiful hand made brushes!? Looking at a few from my collection below it's fascinating to see how they are made around the world in such a variety of techniques. The excellent book 'Brush' by Daniel Rozensztroch and Shiri Slavin pictured below is an excellent introduction to the diversity for the truly obsessed!
Join us for a great day out including a special tour of the Museu de la Pauma, a palm basketry workshop and a special lunch in one of the village restaurants. If your already signed up then look out for an email shortly from Mai with bookings details of the day out. See you in Mas de Barberans!
