Weaving Giants

Giants big or small, cultural heritage is fascinating to us all 

Are you a private individual, city or town council, association or just a culture lover with an interest in giants? Then this is for you! 

One day I had my stand on a market for crafts and a man came up to me and asked: "Well miss, I see that you make tiny baskets, also big ones, but are you capable of weaving very big baskets?". This very big basket turned out to be the structure of a giant from a school in Watermaal-Bosvoorde (town in Belgium) that was standing there catching dust. A long story short, they wanted to freshen it up again and let it go back out on parades. Discover more about the whole story of the giant in Flanders. 

Fast forward 20 years I have been proclaimed several times as "the giants doctor of Belgium". As a craftsperson this is my way of contributing to the cultural heritage of Flanders. I've been fortunate enough to create giants for "La Maison des Géants" (the house of Giants in Ath Belgium), and for various private individuals, associations, cities and municipalities. 

Whether we're talking about giants big or small, bottom or upper structure, old or new one, every idea and proposal is welcome!

Questions or interested? 

Feel free to contact me when interested or with questions about an idea for a possible new creation.  

Do you already own a giant, but is it perhaps in need of some loving care? I also do repairs and can help you restore them.
