Who we support

We are committed to support Moravian traditions and culture. Our long-term project is the rescue of the folk art painters and the skill of ornament painting - we organize domestic and abroad exhibitions and workshops, where we pass on the old time knowledge from one generation to another. We also teach textile techniques such as embroidery, bobbin winding, knitting, spinning, weaving and more. We knit from wicker, straw and cut from wood, we master the basic techniques of wirework and ceramics. We are also engaged in baking and folk confectionery.

We publish coloring books and workbooks of Moravian Slovakia Region ornaments, on which the folk painter Marie Švirgová from Lanžhot cooperates with us. We have organized several exhibitions and workshops in Washington DC, Atlanta, Cedar Rapids, Chicago and New York.
