“… When a girl met a young man and fell in love with him, she would” knit” a bird, usually a pigeon or a swallow on the bread. If the bread baked well, then she had hope of marrying her loved one. ”
An educational program with a mainly folkloric character, where children learn the importance of bread in the ritual of marriage in Crete, analyzing the symbolism of the decoration. In this experiential workshop, the children make a festive bread together while singing wedding songs.
This activity is mainly a game of representation of the operational process. The lecture evolves into a dialogue with the active interaction with the children, but also into an experiential experience through singing and dancing.
The Program is addressed to pupils of all grades of Primary School.
