Shirdak (#15)

Shirdaks are the Sunday carpets from Kyrgyzstan. In the bozuis (yurts) they lie on the ala-kisj carpets.
They are made in twins or triplets.
When a girl marries, a twin shirdak is made. One remains in the family and the other goes with the girl to the new family.

Finished felt is cut, reassembled in the opposite color and sewn together using handmade cords.

Of course we are free to work with traditional or modern motifs.

This course can be one theme of the Feltcarousel.

Workshop length: 3, 4 or 5 days
