"Silken Creation" on Sunday 7 April at 11am!
The Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP) is celebrating the European Artistic Craft Days (1-7 April) and, on Sunday 7 April (at 11am), is holding a handicraft workshop titled “Silken Creation” at the Silk Museum in Souflí (Thrace).
Children and adults will have the opportunity to discover firsthand the stages of preindustrial sericulture, starting off with the traditional cottage-industry throwing or re-reeling, i.e. how the precious silk filament is unwound from the cocoon and wound into skeins on wheels. Following this, they will weave on a traditional loom and dye silk fabrics with vegetable dye.
Participation in the workshop, and the materials, are free of charge.
Advance sign-up is required.
For further information, please contact the Museum on (+30) 25540 23700 (daily except Tuesdays, 10am-6pm).
