Martenitsi Workshop (Bulgaria)

Artistic Activities

The new Acropolis Bulgaria celebrated the arrival of spring and the arrival of Baba Marta with a creative workshop of “martenitsi” (a small ornament, made of white and red thread and usually in the form of two dolls, one male in white and the other female in red). A reflection was carried out on the meaning of knitting and the qualities we develop, such as patience, perseverance, concentration, harmony and others. The practical part was expressed in showing the participants how to start knitting and the basic elements of knitting. Success was varied, including both the most experienced and novices.
