They are ready to share their experience of crafting wood, metal and fabric. Aiman Zhunussova is an experienced tailor. In recent year, she has become interested in Kazakh national art.
AIMAN ZHUNUSSOVA, RESIDENT OF BALKASHINO VILLAGE
- It makes me calm when I needle these ornaments. It is beautiful. I have always seen Kazakh national ornaments in my house since my childhood. I want to train girls now so that they could do the needlework. It is very beautiful. It is a craft for women.
Tatyana Nikulitsa has engaged in Kazakh applied art quite recently but has gained some experience and ready to share with others.
TATYANA NIKULITSA, RESIDENT OF MAKSIMOVKA VILLAGE
- We learn about Kazakh ornaments, Kazakh amulets. We want people to know about their homeland and their culture. At present, we make such sort of coasters for hot pans and pots. They are called tabak. Women like it very much. They present tabaks to their mothers and grandmothers.
Sandyktau craftsmen wish to have as many followers as possible. They are offering to create craftsmen society that could’ve united people who love national craft.
