Ladies and teddies, little pigs and cuckoos, puppies and hedgehogs, small rats and cats, dinosaurs, rabbits and fish all made of porcelain and textiles... About 50 puppeteers from different regions of Ukraine present their masterly skills at Palace of Arts in Lviv (17 Kopernika Street). “Dolls’ World” is the first festival held in Ukraine, which aims at popularizing the phenomenon of hand-made dolls, spreading the culture of dolls making, and establishing contacts between doll-makers. This is not the premiere event – the festival was established in 2009.
“Doll’s World” gives an opportunity for the participants to exchange valuable experience, learn new techniques during workshops, and learn about the new global trends in dolls-making. And for the public it is a nice opportunity to see the culture of doll-making, which is rapidly developing in Ukraine.
You can dive in the “Dolls’ World” and, at the same time, in the world of childhood until September 29.
