Teliu: sculpture, leather and pottery workshops


In Brasov County, once the summer break has come, there are organized thematic camps for young people and children. In Teliu commune, "Suflet Transilvan" Social-Cultural Association in collaboration with the Town Hall of Teliu commune and the Orthodox Parish from Teliu-Vale organized, from July 7th to 12th 2015, the 4th edition of the Camp for Young People having as a theme "Old traditions embracing a new spirit, wood ? clay ? leather", camp that gathered many children from different regions of the country.

40 young people, involved

The camp raised the interest of the children passionate about traditional art, and more than 40 young people from Brasov, Sibiu, Covasna and Harghita counties enrolled in this project. "As it is a Camp organized by the Orthodox Church, the young people attended the praying programme, as well as short tuition and lessons about the history of Transylvania. This project aims at re-bringing to the fore the Romanian traditional folk customs in close relation to the orthodox traditions from a multicultural area. Its goal is to build a creation camp for young people between 14 and 35 years old, from four counties of the Central Region (Brasov, Covasna, Harghita and Sibiu), mainly from the rural areas", said the Priest Costin Butnar.


The camp included three workshops, respectively sculpture, leather and pottery. The workshops were led by folk masters guiding the children to the art of craft. Young people showed their interest in the work method and were very receptive when it came to approaching the authentic traditional techniques.
The agenda was complemented with trips, games, music and dance shows.

The secrets of crafts

"We got involved in this project because we wanted to contribute to the education of the children eager to learn about the specific craft techniques. We are happy to know that at the end of the camp they acquired the skills for creating traditional items: crosses, spindles, candelas, opinci (traditional shoes), bags, or other objects of the kind", said Mr. Vasile Serban, the Mayor of Teliu.
The camp ended with an exhibit of the objects made by the young people. The best of them were rewarded by His Eminence Laurentiu Streza, PhD, Metropolitan Bishop of Ardeal region.
