Description

Norbert Platz, originally from Germany, shows how he makes a square picnic hamper in buff willow. Enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of willow, Platz has been making baskets for over 25 years in his County Cork workshop. Platz is a founding member of the Irish Basketmakers Association and has won several awards in the RDS Craft Competitions over the years. This DVD is one of a set of 3 DVDs demonstrating the use of brown, buff and white willow by three individual basketmakers (Norbert Platz, Bill Sinnott and Paddy Coleman O'Toole) living in Ireland in 2010.

Produced by the Irish Basketmakers Association; 1 hour, 10 minutes. "This fine series of basketmaking films give a vivid account of a vital element of our material culture, far more enlightening than reading about it. The DVDs focus on uniquely Irish aspects of basketmaking where techniques particular to this country are being used." Joe Hogan, author of Bare Branches Blue Black Sky. This DVD is NTSC format (commonly used in the United States and Canada).
