The best present is made with own hands.
The creative team of TAOR Karpaty constantly seeks to make your rest truly special and exciting. That is why every week we organize a new event where our guests are able to get fresh impressions, recharge emotionally, discover something new. One of such events, a crafts festival, was recently held at TAOR Karpaty. We invited craftsmen from Western Ukraine, true masters of their trade, and despite shortage of space we did manage to create a warm atmosphere while our gusts were able to learn the ropes in:
making knotted dolls
straw plaiting completely for free.
We organized a small exhibition of the craftsmen's articles. Watching an item being made was really inspirational and attitude changing - now we knew how much time and effort it took to produce it.
The most persistent visitors made one or several souvenirs with their own hands.
The craftsmen gladly shared their experience with everyone. It appeared that making a souvenir is not an easy thing as every craft has its symbolism, technique, ritual. A prayer over a knotted doll, a meditative talk with a billet of wood, graceful movements of hands emanating warmth while working with clay, light strokes of a painting brush, careful tinkering with straw that will later become a necklace or hat - everything counts.
Children and adults were immersed in the blissful world of art. The workshop was dominated by the sense of creativity, spirituality and calm. We hope that the souvenirs made there will long remind of a vacation at TAOR Karpaty.
And we will continue organizing interesting events for you, dear visitors.
It's time to discover the unknown...
