Pūra lāde – a large chest used in ancient times as a place to store various things.
From July 29th to August 28th, at the Culture and Folk Art Center “Ritums” exhibition hall, the exhibition “Pūra lādes vēdināšana” by Folk applied art studio “Bārbele” can be viewed.
It exhibits the fine handicrafts and scarves made by the study participants over the past three years. The artistic director of TLMS “Bārbele” Gita Prīberga clarifies: “This exhibition combines two in one - it is an exhibition of large scarves, shoulder scarves, shawls and collars and at the same time it is also a tribute to experienced masters. Those works that have been preserved for many years and at the same time have not lost their value, but only gained it.”
Folk applied art studio was founded in 1968. For many years, the studio was run by Anna Krauze, who was a skilled craftswoman. A special stand is dedicated to her at this exhibition, as she would have celebrated her 100th anniversary on April 24 of this year.
Now in the studio it is possible to learn almost all textile crafts - embroidery, knitting, crocheting, knitting and belt weaving. The studio specializes in various lace making skills - frivolity, knipelining, tenerifs and others.
Exhibition is opened daily from 11.00 till 18.00.
Entrance fee 1,00 EUR
