Old crafts

Some old crafts in village Bašelj still persist:

  • Beekeeping – strongly developed activity (honey, mead, royal jelly)
  • Baker weaving - weaving of bags and baskets from hazel
  • Making Easter Palm Sunday bundle from ivy
  • Brandy distilling - whereas the peasant gardens are full of old types of apples, pears and plums, almost every homestead distills brandy. According to locals, there are three variants of brandy distilled: the best for home use, a little less good for sale and the worst for the "parkelj" (Krampus).
  • Bread baking - was preserved on several farms (for home use)
  • Carving and painting
