Handcrafts inside Brasov


The Traditional and Contemporaneous Art Creators Association develops several projects for promoting the cultural inheritance for the rural communities in the Brasov metropolitan area for tourists and also for the purpose of advertising the creations of popular handicraftsmen in the country and abroad. They also promote this heritage within fairs with handicraft products and traditional art, made by artists from Brasov, by organizing creative workshops and competitions for students and children.

?We want to advertise the greatest popular handicraftsmen, out of which we would like to remind those who make the following products: wooden sculpture, roots sculpture, glass painting, wood painting, wood/Saxon furniture painting, creation of dolls in traditional costumes, frivolite (embroidery with shuttle), vegetal braiding with strings and maize husks, figurative ceramics, skin dressing, vegetal braiding ? knitted toys, painted eggs, wind instruments, lacings and embroidery / traditional costumes and products made in the felted wool workshop?, told us Mr Cornel Sculean, Chairman of the Traditional and Contemporaneous Art Creators Association

Recognizing the authentic

The purpose of promoting these handicrafts is that a person be able to make the difference between kitsch and authentic. That is the reason why the popular masters bring workshops, so that tourists can assist, on site, to the creation method of an authentic product. Those who are interested may attend the workshops, where a connection is made between the past crafts and the nowadays traditional art. Practically, there is a connection between generations, between people from the city and the traditions in the villages near Brasov. In these workshops are different work demonstrations where people acknowledge the used materials, the working procedures and the final product. Therefore, they can make the difference between a kitsch and an authentic product.
