2015, June 15

One thursday morning, besides a good weather, worth to spend a day outdoors, a group of curious senior ladies gathered for a seminar and workshop, held by experienced folk artist – Bronė Surdokienė. As Bronė is famous for traditional lithuanian band weaving, there was quite big interest from women to come and try it on with their own hands. To participate in the workshop Alytus Third age university students were also invited. 

First of all the artist presented big collection of bands created by her self. that was followed by huge splashes of admiration of the participants. It is necessary to mention that almost none of the women that came for the workshop had never tried this technique before. After seeing the examples, there was a time to start learning and trying and that was what all the women were waiting impatiently. Actually, the workshop of weaving bands was not the easiest thing, because this handcraft requires lots of concentration and skills and as it was mentioned before, it was first time for biggest part of the participants. Anyway while time was passing, women started to get some skills and job started to go more fluent.

In the end every participant made a small band for her own and went home satisfied with the results achieved and time spent usefully.
