Part of the national Romania heritage, June 24 is dedicated to The Universal Day of the Romanian blouse, named “IE,” that recently become an authentic country brand, with many designers including it in their collections. Every summer, the event is marked in over 60 countries and 300 localities on six continents as a time when families and communities come together to tell stories, give thanks and create. Although we cannot gather due to COVID-19, we can bring our minds and hearts together and acknowledge this time of the summer, share stories and create with us. We invite you to join us for a two hours workshop where you will explore the intersection of the Romanian arts as we combine storytelling with art activities and with the opportunity to complete a final project at home.

During the workshop, the Facilitators will lead the activity as both the presentation and provide extensive ideas for those interested in adding more details for a finished piece. During the workshop, the residents will learn about the Romanian wood art object they will create by painting specific Romanian stitching patterns. The storytelling part of the workshop is a plead for the national immaterial cultural heritage- the Romanian fairy tale characters and their story. The participants will receive inside the bag two postcards with the characters from the Romanian stories as they will have to colour them as the imaginations will dictate. We need to be aware that we need to respect the origins and involve artisans by giving proper credit and sharing the benefits across cultures. By this project, with the help of the City of Burlington - Burlington Arts and Culture, we are looking to maximizing the capacity of the arts and the cultural sector by providing the opportunity to any residents to be exposed to the workshop knowledge.

Each family participating will receive the “Story in a Bag” delivered FREE OF CHARGE to Burlington residents at home with a limit of one bag per household. Any other families interested in participating outside of Burlington city can arrange a pick-up or delivery with the organizer. Kit contains enough materials for 2 participants/households.

PLEASE NOTE: Please choose one day from the available workshop dates. Each household can participate one time to allow more families to be part of our cultural journey.
