The Weaving workshop for children of Ethnographic Museum “Chirpanliev House” will introduce children to the basic types of looms, their parts and weaving accessories, as well as various basic weaving techniques.
After a brief demonstration of tablet weaving, each child will be able to make his/her own small portable loom and weave something unique: a bracelet, a plate support or a decorative wall panel. Children will have the opportunity to work with different materials (including natural ones, branches, leaves, etc.), they will learn how to include beads into the weave, make different patterns, knots, fringe.
The workshop is suitable for children over 6 years. All the necessary materials are provided by the museum, but each child can bring his/her own additional materials (colored yarns, pieces of cloth, twine, beads) if desired.
