Learn the art of Suiti embroidery

4 hours Max 10 people100 euros per group

Rija is the place to learn about Suiti and their traditions. The glass pearl embroidery masterclass invites anyone to learn this craft that Suiti women are so good at. These meticulous and colourful pearl embroideries are creations of art and culture, embodying the traditional mastery of the local artisans. The pearl embroideries are part of Suiti traditional costumes, usually decorating the collars. As the masterclass demands a deep focus and agile fingers, part of the experience includes a coffee break and a tasting of the traditional dish, called Sklandrausis, and speaking with these crafty Suiti needle women.
