The Ctěnice Wire Crafts Festival is a unique opportunity to learn more about the Czech folk art. The 18th National Meeting of the Czech and Moravian Guild of Wire Craft Artists, the only voluntary professional organisation of wire crafts, will be part of this undertaking. The professional jury will award the best works of art which will compete at the exhibition Myths, Legends, and Fairy Tales. The visitors will learn about the history, present and the modern use of wire crafts both in the world and in the Czech Republic. There will be lectures, practical demonstrations, and creative workshops to try out the various techniques of wire art.
The festival will take place all weekend. On Sunday, the Harvest Festival will be celebrated. The Arts and Crafts Market and creative workshops for children will be prepared. Furthermore, the programme will include the baking and tasting of freshly baked bread and cereal flatbread made from fresh flour as well as practical demonstrations of harvesting techniques – the threshing of cereal and bounding of sheaves. Visitors are welcome to try them out.
