Learn Cypriot way of Straw Knitting
Cyprus - Nicosia (North) - Nicosia


Traditional Hand Craft Course


We as Hasder Folk Arts Institute, are a non-profit organization. We do not only produce, display and sell hand crafts using colors, patterns and motifs authentic to Cyprus, but also give courses in handcrafts to revive this part of the Cyprus culture.

We will teach you how to make this sickle-cut wheat stalk 'Sesta' with traditional Cypriot colours and patterns. The Sesta/ Sele you will make from straws will be reflecting the aesthetic culture of Cypriot people using the folkloric pattern with harmonious colours.

Cypriots at historic times were using these incredibly strong and light baskets to bring in the olive or carob harvest and fruits.

Now, join our 1-1.5 hours workshop, take you HAND-MADE 'Sesta' home and use it or display in your house as a souvenir from Cyprus.

You can take the pieces you make. You will need to pay for the raw material by cash on the day of the experience. The charges vary from 1 to 3 euros each.

What can you make with Sesta?

Ornaments, table for walls, cup coaster, table mat, jewelry box, tiny baskets and many more...

Thanks for reading. We are looking forward to meeting with you!
