DEMONSTRATION OF WEAVING TRADITIONAL LADIES headgear ON A LOOM AND INTERACTIVE SOCIALISING WITH HANDICRAFTS PEOPLE – WEAVING WORKSHOP

The KUD Ključ Trg handicrafts group from Croatia are visiting guests and will demonstrate their special method of knitting threads to produce traditional ladies headgear. Why are they coming to Škojfa Loka? This kind of technique of producing material, long-forgotten in Slovenia, is depicted on the fresco of St. Sunday in Crngrob and is a true ethnological and historical speciality.  The group will show how their predecessors used the technique to make wonderful patterns and used them to decorate their clothes.
