Palm Sunday in Betina

There are two different palms that can be made in Betina – a male one and a female palm. A male palm is made out of a single branch, while the female palm is more…

Making of “ogrica” – workshop

On Friday the 02nd, as part of our educational and creative program, a workshop will be held where we’ll learn how to make one specific and recognizable, traditional decoration of folk costumes typical for some villages in Šibenik region –  Ogrica. Older women from the village say they were worn by their grandmothers too. Ogrica can be made by placing pearls directly onto the fabric which is prepared before this phase and then you create a motif – mostly floral or geometrical. There is also a method when you first crochet the surface with a simple pattern on which you’ll insert your pearls, or, with knitting needles where after the first row is knitted, the second you start by inserting pearls with other needles, and…

The making of Betina gajeta scale model

The main goal of this workshop is to initiate interest in modelling, handcraft and shipbuilding. By making, forming their shape and then fining of all the small parts for our scale model children have learneda lot about the main components of the boat.
