CREATIVE WORKSHOPS – WEAVE YOUR OWN RIBBON!

16 July 2021

On 6th of July, 2021 at 4 p. m. creative workshops for the public were organized at Upytė Craft Center (Ėriškių str. 16B, Upytė, Panevėžys district) and near Upytė Mound. The creation of a ribbon as an element of Lithuanian national costume took place under implementation of the Interreg V-A Latvia – Lithuania Cross Border Cooperation Programme 2014–2020 project „Craftsmanship as Tourism Product without Borders (LLI-539 Tour de Crafts)“.

Everyone who wanted was invited to join and weave their own ribbon. This educational program was a part of the event d

edicated to Lithuanian State Day in Panevėžys district.

Therefore, the combinations of threads of Lithuanian national flag colors – yellow, green and red – were chosen to weave the ribbon in order to mark this special occasion. The participants who came to the event very willingly and enthusiastically joined the educational activities, and after getting acquainted with the method of weaving the ribbon and trying it, they woven it as a festive element of the national costume. Adorned with their own product, they continued actively participate in the festival’s events, encouraging other participants to take advantage of the unique opportunity to create their own unique attribute of the event.

The LED screen system purchased from the project budget was also tested: certified weaver, folk artist Irena Ona Vilienė demonstrated ribbon weaving at Upytė Traditional Crafts Center, while participants gathered on Upytė Mound, where stands and threads for ribbon weaving were prepared, watching the broadcast lesson on a nearby LED screen, weaved their ribbons.

The ribbon weaving method was of particular interest to children and seniors, accompanied by a festive mood, people gathered at the ribbon weaving stands until the end of the event.

These creative workshops as educational program will be continued at the Upytė Craft Center during various other events or as a separate programme for tourists, visitors and students coming here.
