The first part of the training on the traditional skill of weaving on „brdo“ – a kind of portable loom – began on June 22, 2020 at the NSHC premises. The training is led by Ivana Morarević, who has been making handmade woven fabrics for years.
The training is part of the project “Keeping Tradition Alive through Social Entrepreneurship” which is designed to contribute to the preservation of cultural heritage and the development of social entrepreneurship among young people. The planned activities of the project are the transfer of traditional skills to young people, and then the training of young people on the principles and practical steps for establishing a social enterprise. Participants will have the opportunity to use knowledge from both areas to produce traditional products and offer them on the market.
The project is funded by the European Union through the Erasmus + program. The project holder is Dacorum CVS from Hemel Hempstead / UK, and the partners are Predict from Arad / Romania, Development Centre Heart of Slovenia from Litija / Slovenia, Stephens and George Centenary Charitable Trust from Merthyr Tydfill / Wales, Viesoji istaiga “Degu” from Kaunas, Lithuania and the Novi Sad Humanitarian Centre.
