Through Knowledge to Conservation 2020

A series of educational workshops will be held in January and February in the branch offices of the Public Institute of Krka National Park in Drniš and Skradin.

Educational workshops, as part of the project Through Knowledge to Conservation, will be hosted by Vlatka Hlišć from Zagreb to mark the 35th anniversary of Krka National Park. Workshops will be held in both the Skradin and Drniš park offices: 30 January – 1 February at Skradin, and 6 – 8 February at Drniš, all from 6 to 8 pm.  

Participants at the workshop will learn the macramé knotting technique. This technique was very popular in the 1970s and 80s, and it has again been revived by social media as a simple, but exceptionally artistic, relaxing and therapeutic art form. The first day will present the basics of macramé. Participants will learn how to tie the simplest knot, and will learn how to make a key ring. On the second day, participants will make candle holders using glass jars (that they bring from home). On the final day of the workshop, participants will learn how to make the diamond knot and wall macramé. All participants will be able to take their work home with them, and we hope that they will use the knowledge learned to make new creations.

Through responsible behaviour, and with a little creativity and good will, everyone can have a positive impact on the living world that surrounds them, and contribute to conserving biological diversity. Though children are perhaps the best spokespeople and ambassadors of Krka National Park, as the knowledge they gain about the park is then passed on to their families and friends, it is important to always motivate adults to come and spend their free time in the park, and to get to know the Krka River, and to care for their environment by changing some of their habits and using alternative production methods. That is why the Public Institute of Krka National Park has been organising lectures and workshops as part of the project Through Knowledge to Conservation since 2012. The project was conceived as a series of educational activities, particularly eco-workshops and lectures, aimed at familiarising interested persons, above all the adult local population, with ways to reduce global consumerism and to breathe “new life” into disposed items. The workshops are free of charge for the local population. To take part, all you need to do is register at: silvija.caleta@npk.hr.

We look forward to seeing you there!
