Completed colony in Stara Planina

On Tuesday, June 27th, the second weavers’ colony in Stara Planina was completed. 15 weavers from different parts of Serbia participated and grew through the training program. During the 4 days, the colony participants had the opportunity to upgrade their knowledge and skills in the weaving technique with the help of skilled weavers from the crafts cooperative "Damsko srce" from Pirot and learned interesting historical facts about the motifs and symbols of the Pirot rug patterns. With the help of professional lecturers, the weavers expanded their knowledge of the design of handicrafts and their placement in the market.

On the final day of the colony, the expert jury had a difficult task to select the best woven piece made during the colony, and the award was given to Svetlana Spatarevic Popovic from Kladovo.

The weavers’ colony was organized by Ethno Network, NALED and the crafts Cooperative "Damsko srce", with the support of the cities of Pirot and Sombor, as well as the embassies of Australia and the United States.
