Norbert Platz originally from Germany has been making baskets in his workshop in County Cork for over 25 years. Enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge of willow and basketmaking, he runs workshops for both beginners and more advanced practitioners from his home.

He is a founder member of the Irish Basketmakers Association and has won several awards in the RDS Craft Competitions over the years.

Norbert shows how he makes a square picnic hamper in buff willow. This is one of a set of DVDs demonstrating the use of brown, buff and white willow by three individual basketmakers living in Ireland today.
