For twenty years, we have been organising in Bratislava a festival of traditional crafts and folk production called ÚĽUV Craftsmen Days. Every two years, ÚĽUV hosts competitions for young professional designers and for pupils of primary schools and art schools.
ÚĽUV organizes SPLINTS WEAVING WORKSHOP in the frame of the European Days of Arts and Crafts. The workshop is aimed at familiarizing with the process of making a splints basket from the beginning to the final product - collecting, steaming and chopping the wood, preparing the splints and knitting.
