Events at Österlen
Inauguration of the exhibition Beloved basket!
18 Sep at 10:00 - PM14:00Free
Loved the basket! is a traveling exhibition produced by Sörmlands museum and Skånes Hemslöjdsförbund and supplemented with baskets from Fornminnesföreningen's collections at Österlen's museum. The exhibition wants to arouse curiosity about the craft, show the diversity of baskets in Sweden and tell about our rich basket tradition around the country. The basket as carrying aid, transport and storage has a long tradition, but can the basket fulfill a new function in our modern society and can we keep the classic basket craft alive?
In Beloved Basket! lifts the basket from perspectives such as material knowledge, technical knowledge and history. The exhibition shows a large amount of baskets, materials and basket techniques from different parts of Sweden together with films and documentation. When the exhibition is shown at Österlens Museum, it is supplemented with baskets from the museum's collections and with baskets from local Scanian basket craftsmen.
The exhibition runs until 30/1 2022. Free admission.
