DEŠA-Dubrovnik continues its tradition of organizing Easter workshops. This year, the workshops on palm knitting and egg painting, have been organized in the framework of the project “Easter in my town,” funded by the City of Dubrovnik, Department of Culture and Heritage, and Dubrovnik Neretva County, Department of Education, Culture and Sports.
Easter workshops – knitting were organized from April 8th to April 11th. We organized workshops on decorating eggs with modern techniques and traditional egg painting workshops from April 14th to April 17th. Easter workshops were attended by a large number of children from kindergartens, primary schools from the city of Dubrovnik and the surrounding areas, as well as a large number of our citizens.
With these workshops DEŠA wants to transfer and preserve the tradition of Dubrovnik area. In order to achieve greater impact of these workshops on the residents of this region, DEŠA has been trying for years to include as many children and young people. By transferring the tradition to the youngest, DEŠA wants to encourage parents, grandparents and neighbors of the beneficiaries to celebrate the Easter in the way their ancestors did.
