Annual Assembly and Gold Thread Embroidery Seminar

Within the project entitled “Preservation of non-material cultural values” implemented by Ethno Network, with the support of Republic Ministry of Culture, Ethno Network held a seminar on gold thread embroidery techniques that included a visit to the Museum of the Serbian Orthodox Church. The overall goal of the project is to revitalize the knowledge of old and forgotten techniques, primarily felting, gold thread embroidery and fillet lace. The interest among potential course takers is growing and the raw materials are readily available at low prices. Another most positive element of the project is the ecological aspect as the project implies only the use of natural fibers in production. Gold thread embroidery seminar was attended by 12 members of Ethno Network who had the opportunity to learn new embroidery techniques and motifs that can be applied in a variety of household and clothing items. Additionally, Ethno Network held the annual assembly meeting to adopt financial reports, define membership criteria and the work plan for 2009.
