Embark on a journey of creativity and discovery with our costume making workshop, inspired by traditional folk costumes from Eastern Europe. What will you learn on this course? During this two day course, children will have the opportunity to create costumes inspired by traditional folk costumes from Europe. Participants will unleash their imagination and artistic talents as they design and craft their own own pieces, including a headdress/hat, a waistcoat, a cuff and a leg piece! They will be free to decide the basic shapes of their pieces - for which they'll have a range of different ideas and templates – and which materials work best to execute their design. Their work will involve bold silhouettes and lots of decorative elements, including beads and embellishments! Crafting costumes involves cutting, gluing, hand sewing, building up textures and embellishment which will enhance fine motor skills and attention to detail. The children will use a variety of textiles, such as calico, felt, ribbons, wool and thread. As well as recycled materials, such as cardboard and also some wire for structure.

Through hands-on costume making, children will delve into the vibrant traditions and stories of Eastern Europe, making learning an enjoyable and immersive experience. Accompanied by a fun and easy introduction to the traditional cultures of Eastern Europe, and interesting facts about the theme throughout the class, children will learn the value of respecting and celebrating cultural differences while having fun with making their very special pieces to wear.
