About this Workshop

Description

In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to learn the embroidery technique which is an important part of Serbian traditions.  This knowledge will allow you to continue to create a variety of shapes, and together we will make a traditional flower design.  Let's peek into this colorful world of embroidery together!

The embroidery technique is deeply rooted in the Serbian tradition.  Embroidery is a Serbian way of decorating clothes and other materials.  It used to be a very common female craft, so there is not a single Serbian house whose walls were not decorated with hand-embroidered tapestries, and the tables with hand-embroidered tablecloths.  Serbian folk costumes are also decorated with hand-embroidered details.  Whenever we want to beautify a piece of clothing or refresh an old one with a pattern and thus bring it back to life, embroidery is a technique we like to use.

Embroidery is often taught in elementary school in Serbia.  When I was in fourth grade we studied Folk Tradition where we learned how to embroider and how it is part of our culture and tradition

We will create a beautiful piece together, and afterwards you will know this wonderful and useful skill, as well as how it related to Serbian culture.  I am excited fo you to join me in this Workshop!

Anita JankovićView Profile

Hi everyone! I'm Anita Janković, i'm 23 and I come from Serbia.  I'm a psychology student who currently lives in a small town on the south of Serbia, named Niš (Nish).  I love connecting with people because it gives me opportunity to learn about their cultures and languages that I'm so passionate about.  I'm fluent in Spanish and English.  I am also a volunteer with the Red Cross organisation in Niš.
I'm looking forward to work with you, guys!

The craft I am teaching is embroidery.  Embroidery is so deep rooted in Serbian culture. From ancient times, it was one of the ways in which our grandmothers decorated their wardrobes and tablecloths.  We still find this type of decoration today as a recognizable symbol on Serbian folk costumes. Also, there's a belief that Serbs had new for embroidery even before they populated Balcan area.

My favorite things about living in Serbia are the people and food. The people here are very cordial and hospitable. They like good company and jokes and are always ready to help. Also, we have "pljeskavica" (sort of barbecue meat) and "ajvar" (winter salad made from red bell peppers and egg plant), traditional Serbian specialties, which is food to die for.
