Workshop for adults
Furoshiki, Washi and Co – Wrapping presents Japanese style
28 November 2020, 11:00 AM - 16:00 PM

A Japanes furoshiki is a square piece of cloth that is used for different purposes: as a type of lunchbox, as a carrier bag for personal items, or for wrapping presents. Participants are introduced to different knotting and folding techniques for elegantly wrapping objects of different size and shape in either cloth or paper. In this way, the wrap itself already becomes a gift.

Please, bring with you a picnic for lunch and an item for wrapping.

The lotus is a special flower. All dirt seems to magically pearl off which is why the lotus flower stands for purity in Buddhism. Using paper and colours we make a lotus lamp to guide us through the dark days ahead.

The exhibition playfully reveals practices by which people commemorate important moments in life, but quickly also forget about them again. From birth to death, significant events are passed down by word of mouth, chiselled in stone, or, as the case may be, kept secret.

Museum Bistro

MUSEUM BISTRO

In the heart of Basel, just a stone’s throw away from the Minster, is the museum bistro Rollerhof.
You can relax in peace and quiet in the inner courtyard. The premises are also available for rent for special occasions.

Building
Mentioned in documents for the first time in 1355, the ‘Rollerhof’ building reflects many centuries of Basel’s history. Owners have included the Cathedral Chapter, Basel mayors and factory owners, but also a banker to the Austro-Hungarian Imperial court. In around 1667, picturesque wooden bowers were erected in the inner courtyard, while a hundred years later, stucco ceilings were added to the rooms in keeping with the fashionable Rococo style of the period. The sensitive renovation work carried out by the architects Diener & Diener in 2000 achieved the present-day harmony between the modern restaurant and the historic parts of the building.
