Hand crafted FOLK COSTUMES , dolls

A Leaflet

A quite new challenge !

One of the challenges in project activities was students to create traditional local and national folk costumes- hand made ( size of doll ).

They started to create them firstly- size of doll ,so that they learn and practise that interesting craft.

During the some more days they collected some fabrics and other needed materials to start this activity.

All project schools made wonderful folk costumes.

We hope one day when they grow up.. to create and design wonderful traditional folk costumes.

Latvian folk costumes are really quite different from the other partner's ones.

They are typical for the Latvian nationality and identity.

The most used colour in their folk costumes is the white one.

Partner's exchange of traditional folk costumes - hand crafted.

After making folk costumes, each partner school exchanged dolls with folk costumes, so that each school will have 5 handmade folk costumes that they will make school exhibitions with.
