Imitation Basketry


Taking traditional basket weaving as inspiration for a project about imitation and reinterpretation of craft,  Dineke Dekker's Basket project explores textile and artisinal techniques in a beautiful and poetic way. Using imitation bamboo structures as well as silk screening patterns onto textiles to resemble basketry and through the us of custom made paint stamps she has created a visual feast that plays tricks on the eye and comments on traditional craftsmanship in our modern world.
