Felting in Sremska Mitrovica

In Sremska Mitrovica, during November, training is held in felting - hand rolling of wool. The organizer is the Ethno Network with the support of the embassies of Canada, the USA and Israel and in cooperation with the National Employment Service, the City of Sremska Mitrovica and the Association "Zlatno runo Sirmijuma” which held the training.

It is intended primarily for unemployed women who want to professionally make handicrafts based on the cultural heritage of Serbia. 6 women are participating in the training, and the youngest is 24 years old.

The training lasts four weeks and is held in the premises of MZ Sveti Sava. Participants learned the technique of dry and wet felt, which they successfully mastered and as a result there were felting balls, round and square chair pads, as well as small and large bags with folds, and all handicrafts have Solomon's knot, a motif that is characteristic of this area.

Certificates are provided for all participants, which will be awarded at the end of the year at the closing ceremony in the presence of the diplomatic corps.
