Merlin aktivnosti Through the project of Medieval Events on Veprinac and Dvigrad, we started the thematic children's workshops for making medieval costumes. During the first semester of the academic year, children in the first three grades in the R. K. Jeretov Elementary School in Opatija, Veprinac, with the help of their teachers, created 32 costumes for participation in the Feast of St Mark. In Elementary School Kanfanar we used our sewing machine to create 6 costumes for ladies and squires of Dvigrad together with the students of the 4th grade. By learning about the life and history of the Middle Ages, students learned the skills of manual and machine sewing. The main goal of the project was to familiarize the children with the skills they need in their daily life and to involve the local population in launching new cultural events in the hinterland of larger tourist centers. The project is co-financed by the Kanfanar Municipality and the Town of Opatija.
