On the 4. Oct we organized a short workshop to children. The theme was the gördes knot that we have in common. We all know oriental and turkish carpets and in Finland we have a traditional textile called ryijy (a rug) that is made with a similar knot as the oriental carpets. We learned how to make the knot and discussed how the technique could be used in a new way.

It was fun! Thanks to all the participants and organizers!
