During Betina Week of Folkore two wonderful evenings were held in front of our musuem.
First, we opened the Exhibition of Scarfs from the collection of our Melita & Ajka, members of Zora Cultural Association. We talked with the authors of the exhibition and learned more about the motifs on the scarves, what type of scarf was worn in different occasions, ways to wear a scarf… The exhibition will be set up during the Betina Week of Folklore.
We had a lot of interesting things to see in the Evening of Old Arts and Crafts. Boatbuilder Milan Jadrešić almost “moved” the entire workshop to our street and demonstrated the production of wooden boat parts. Our creative Esma Šandrić and Neda Juran showed us what were they making during winter months. Cultural Association Pekljica from Primošten presented the traditional lacemaking. Marino Mijat showed the making of domestic soaps, while Sanja Šikić brought her body care products based on olive oil, immortelle, lavender… There was so much interest in the traditional clothes washing that we decided it would be nice to have a competition sometimes… Our most skilled women Stajka, Milena Bilić, Kosovka and Milena Bokan were presenting the rope weaving, peeling the beans, hand wool spinning and knitting. Nikola Bosna and Darko Škevin were presenting the making of tradition inspired souvenirs. The evening was pleasant and educational.
