On the occasion of the International Day of Puppeteer, a workshop on making of rag dolls will take place in Uzhgorod
On March 21, 2016 at 14.30, the Transcarpathian Regional Scientific Library, (Svoboda Ave., 16), on the occasion of the International Day of Puppeteer, will host a workshop "Make a rag doll yourself."
The organizer of the event, NGO "My Transcarpathia", invites everyone to the beckoning world of rag dolls that reflects the ancient culture, traditions and worldview of our ancestors. A rag doll is not only a cultural symbol. It is also a powerful home charm, a ritual item, a toy for children and adults, an original souvenir and a home interior decoration.
The tradition of making rag dolls, unfortunately, is being forgotten.
Our workshop will help you learn about the types and purpose of rag dolls, traditions, rituals and customs with which they are associated, easy techniques of making them and just spend some time over an interesting and useful activity!
The event is free. The workshop will be conducted by Galina Styuflyayeva.
Seating is limited, so the organizers ask to sign up for the workshop by phone: 0950416817, 0505853541 (Natalia).
Bring along: scissors, needles, threads and small coins for making a talisman.
