Wickerwork weaving was a widespread home craft in the past, but today only a few craftsmen continue this tradition. In the Škofja Loka area, weavers were producing a wide variety of products, mainly from willow whips and hazel rods. The exhibition Wickerwork – A Braid of Tradition, which was created in cooperation between the Škofja Loka Museum and the Arts and Crafts Center of Škofja Loka, presents wickerwork products and photographs from the museum's archives. The Arts and Crafts Center of
Škofja Loka documented the story of Janez Krišelj, who comes from a family of weavers and continues the century-old tradition of weaving wicker products in the Gorenjska region by using traditional methods and materials. His working processes are presented in the form of a documentary film and are also included in a handcraft manual.
The exhibition is part of the Roko-delci (Hand-crafters) project, which aims not only to document traditional handcraft skills, but also to develop, present and market them. The project contributes to the preservation of Slovenia's intangible cultural heritage.
