- The bachelorette party in seto style
Every girl, especially the one at the age to be married has always considered handicraft skills to be an honourable thing. A hope chest full of mittens, waistbands, shirts and bands became filled before the wedding during the girls’ nights. At the twilight hours, the handicraft was done together while singing and telling stories.
Come with your girlfriends to have a pre-wedding bachelorette party! Let’s try the fancywork: braiding bands, making waistbands, Seto embroidery. We prepare a present – veimed – to the groom’s family. For refreshments we make tea in a samovar. We listen to stories about proposing to the woman and Seto wedding traditions.
Price comes together according to client's wishes.
In addition, it is possible to order pies or other Seto dishes from Kolu inn.
* The workshop is suitable for up to 12 people.
