ART Promotion

10:00 — 17:00

The event takes place as part of the Days of Culture of the Republic of Mordovia and the 5th International Crafts Congress.

Presentation of folk crafts and traditional arts and crafts, such as: Tavla wood carving, Mordovian embroidery, seven-color knitting, making folk dolls, weaving belts, etc. A striking and original phenomenon of the Mordovian folk art is embroidery, which was the main decoration of traditional clothing. The Tavlin carving is characterized by the creation of moving toys and 3D compositions from soft wood. Due to its fascinating form, expressiveness of the image and original ornament, the Tavlin carved toy made of wood is one of the 7 wonders of the Finno-Ugric world. Another ancient type of applied art is patterned multicolor knitting, which became particularly famous thanks to the works from the village of Tengushevo in the second half of the 19th century.

During the Forum, the presentation lasts for two days: November 11–12.
