Weekend Workshop: When Tradition meets Modern Artists
Romanian tradition has inspired for centuries the local people, but not only, it has and continues to inspire artists and designers.
During the weekend workshop we will take a look on the traditional embroideries and motifs.
Dyeing with plants is so fascinating that we will take look and try out different plants and flowers and see the result.
After dying some fabrics we will embellish them with some traditional motifs. This time we will get creative with needle and thread and make our own summer bag.
We will make a mood board to decorate a traditional Romanian house being inspired by Brâncusi.
There will be relaxing time to walk around in the village and discover what the local people make.
And this year there is also a Sonoro festival in the area, some chambre music in the fortified church of Viscri.
You will stay in a small village where it seems life came to a stop. Viscri is one of the hidden treasures you still find in Romania.
