Learning diversity at ASTRA Museum

The educational program Learning diversity was dedicated especially to children, but also to adults. They were invited to experiment creative techniques and skill development activities with craftsmen within the homesteads reconstructed or restored through the Open Heritage project.

Thus, a sensory path was created and educational workshops were organized - decorated bead velvet ribbons, painted furniture, gastronomy, ceramics - decorative motifs, straw knitting, precious fabrics - creative recycling, sewing-embroidery, tailoring.

Ovidiu Baron: “The sensory path proposed by Astra Museum within the Open Heritage project is an open gate towards traditional civilization for decades to come.”
