Guests from Thailand participate in the work of Folk Yards
On June, 30 within the III Krasnoyarsk International Music Festival of Asian-Pacific region and celebration of the 384thanniversary of Krasnoyarsk in the central part of the city there have been set Folk Yards. The grounds from 24 towns and areas of the Krasnoyarsk Krai are located on Mira Avenue from Parizhskaya Commune St. to the Big Concert Hall.
"It is the first time we have organized Folk Yards within the Festival of Asian-Pacific region. As the festival is an international event, it was very important for us to show the diversity of the Krasnoyarsk Krai, its might,” - said the director of the Krasnoyarsk National Centre of Folk Art Lubov Eruslanova. That's why we have involved a lot of resources from different areas of the region. "
It provided Krasnoyarsk and its guests with the opportunity to go to the pub "It’s tasty like at mother’s-in-law" , to try tea from the Kuragino area, to admire old looms and bast shoes from the Birilyussy area, to buy national souvenirs in a small shop, decorated in old Russian style by inhabitants of the Ermakov area. Guests can learn how to arrange a real Russian log house at the representatives of the Achinsk area.
One of the most original homesteads there has become "Bachelorette party in the bath-house" from the town of Yeniseisk. Girls showed traditional rites of the bachelorette party - the washing of a bride in the bath-house, and then every interested person could be sprinkled with water for good luck.
Food, sunflower oil, guarding dolls, clothes made of linen can be seen in the Minusinsk yard "Golden Sunflower".
At the same time there started its work "City of Masters", located on Mira Avenue from Weinbaum St. to Surikov St. The exhibitions and sales of handmade art objects are presented by many regional organizations: "Masters of the Krasnoyarsk Krai" (Krasnoyarsk), "Yenisei" (Yeniseisk), "Union of creativity" (Nazarovo), “House of handicraft” from Borodino, Zaozerny, and also from the Rybinsk and Bolsheuluysky areas.
Here you can buy birch bark products, old Russian children's toys, wooden utensils, matreshkas, paintings, knitwear, scarves, jewelry and bags in ethnic style and many others.
Patch-work dolls made by Valentine Mezhov are popular with visitors. For the City Day she has specially created a doll of Paraskeva-Pyatnitsa, which is the symbol of the city of Krasnoyarsk.
In the work of "City of Masters" there take part guests from Thailand: on their ground they offer Siberians to buy bright parasols and a variety of national souvenirs.
