New patterns to grace Kupalie sash

Mogilev Region weavers start second stage of work over Belarus’ longest sash

Mogilev Region weavers start second stage of work over Belarus’ longest sash

“Our master weavers plan to decorate the sash with new patterns and decoration and to try new weaving techniques, discovered during ethnographic exhibitions in their regions. This will not merely be work on the sash but also master classes for those wishing to study this ancient craft, traditional for the Mogilev Region,” noted the Chair of the Mogilev Union of Folk Masters, Natalia Dominikova.

Last year, during the regional weaving seminar, the craftswomen laid the foundations for the rarity. At present, the sash is 35m long and 15cm wide. It will exceed 50m by the Kupalie holiday which is traditionally held in the agro-town of Alexandria of the Shklov District in early July. To assist the project, master weavers from various corners of the region will come to Mogilev each month and continue to work. The presentation of this unique item will be held on the Kupalie holiday (as last year). It’s expected that guests will be able to admire the sash as well as make a contribution to its weaving. Folk craftswomen will also help visitors master the secrets of this ancient craft.
