Celebrating European Artistic Craft Days in the Open-air Water Power Museum

The Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP), in the framework of this year’s European Artistic Craft Days (28/3-3/4), organizes on Saturday 2 April (at 12:00) a creative workshop for children over 8 years old, titled “String art-The art of the thread”, in the Open-air Water Power Museum in Dimitsana.

Guided by artist Katerina Samara and mastering the art of the thread to tangle colourful threads around nails and turn them into unique creations, children will create words identified with universal values and ideals. Their artworks will become part of a larger artistic installation which will be exhibited in the Museum throughout April, sending a message of peace and solidarity to the whole world.
