Basket Workshop in Zimbabwe curated by British Council

The EUNIC Zimbabwe Cluster (British Council, Alliance Française and Goethe Institute) and The National Gallery of Zimbabwe, Harare, announced 2014 the second edition of Basket Case, a visual art and design project bringing together prominent African and European artists and designers, who were commissioned to create new pieces in collaboration with basket weavers located in various parts of Zimbabwe.
Two acclaimed European designers, Matali Crasset (France) and Sebastian Herkner (Germany), were also leading creative workshops with two weaving communities, drawing from their own expertise and the weavers’ traditional craft to develop innovative designs enhancing the communities’ range of objects.
Sebastian Herkner developed a range of baskets in collaboration with the Binga Craft Centre in the north of Zimbabwe.
