Another old gallery back from 2010, when I visited an exhibition of Iranian culture in Minsk.
I was really stunned and fascinated by the diversity of beautiful hand crafts those people produce. This is what I really love – to see people doing job they adore, specially when it’s crafty and they are proud of their work. At the exhibition they even had a storyteller (a translator tried to do the best to deliver the color of the language), you could also see traditional dances, singing and try Iranian tea.
All the masters were creating their masterpieces in real time, just in front of you, an it was even possible to take a mini class on the craft you like, or sign up an envelope or postcard with a calligraphic ligature.
