Merlinove čarolijeChildren's workshops will start on October 1 and are intended for the development and stimulation of the senses. Given that children's sensory integration is best developed through play, movement and research, we have designed two workshops designed for the youngest to stimulate and awaken the senses. CREATIVE CORNER is intended for children aged 3 to 6 and children not covered by regular preschool education. Wortkshop LETTER BY LETTER is intended for children up to 9 years old, with special emphasis on speech and reading development.

RadionicaWork and occupational workshop in sewing and weaving for the disabled persons and the wards of the Vila Marija Center for Adults, the Pula Rehabilitation Center and the Center for the Inclusion and Support in Community, which in 2017 is taking place on Fridays from 9 am to 11 am in Rojs Center, will also continue in 2018! Until now, we have sewn many different decorative items with our students (curtains, aprons, pillow cases, kitchen cloth) from the hand painted materials made at the workshop in Vila Marija. At the end of the year their work will be exhibited at the premises of Vila Marija. In 2018, we will work on the recycling, redesign and repair of clothing. Our students will, in accordance with their abilities and with the help of personal assistants, make bags for everyday use to be used instead of nylon bags.
