Artisans from Brasov


The Ethnography Museum Brasov hosted the varnishing of the exhibition "Artisans from Brasov - Valeria Neuvirt, puppets from corn husks and Gabriela Bularca, crochet toys", continuing thus the series of exhibitions dedicated to handwrought art. Made from good quality natural materials, the toys in the exhibition from the Ethnography Museum is dedicated to children of all ages, as an alternative to serial toys we can find everywhere.

Husk blended figurines

The corn husk blended figurines of Valeria Neuvirt turn into authentic characters populating the ancient village world: the sower, the reaper, the woman kneading bread, the shepherd, the townswoman or the woodcutter, the carol singers, all of them attracting the spectator by the easiness and the heat they generate. The corn leaves are ecologic, they must be worked with while wet, and many operations are necessary till the figurine is ready. Some leaves may be painted. A puppet made of corn leaves may be done in 15 ? 30 minutes. The final result: real works of art.

Crochet toys

Made of resistant threads of cotton, wool or acrylic in a specific design and colour palette, the crochet toys made by Gabriela Bularca invite us to play with them; they are simple, funny and novel, each one of them having a name, mouse Emil, chicken Franco, ladybird Ingrid, accompanied by a story. All the toys seem to carry a part of the author?s soul and the children who participate in the creation workshop develop their intelligence and creativity. Up to now, 29 children took a toy making course: mice, chicken, owls and all kinds of artisanal objects. They learned how to handle the crochet, and eventually how to make their own toys.

School and creativity

"The exhibition represents the collaboration between the Ethnography Museum and two artisans from Brasov, presenting the art of natural fibres braiding. School workshops the children attend are an alternative for the computer. School must include creativity programs in which all those in charge with children education are involved. The exhibition opened today is very attractive both for children and for adults." declared Ligia Fulda, PhD, the manager of the Ethnography Museum Brasov.
