This year’s Reciklart – every day between 4 pm and 11 pm – will work the exchange of stuff, which works under the principle: bring, take, replace. Children will be able to attend a workshop for making masks and textile collages. Kids are invited to learn how to transfer photos to wood and textiles and to how to make colorful carpets from discarded t-shirts.

Organizers are also planning a DIY product fair, art auction, concert, projection of a documentary movie, circus show and surely some other interesting events will pop up.

Participation in the festival is free, but voluntary contributions are always very welcome.

Let’s move and create a mosaic! – a creative workshop for children   

Offspring of Reciklart Festival is happening on 21 April, Friday at 3.30 pm and on 22 April, Saturday at 3.30 pm, and we are kindly inviting children (older than 4 years old) to join our creative workshop.

The workshop – which is going to take place at the courtyard of Metelkova in front of Alkatraz Gallery – will teach you what mosaic is, and how and from what materials we can create it. After we learn this, we will start to create the mosaic on the walls of Alkatraz Gallery.

Parents and children are more than welcome to bring various objects – old toys, cups, plates, products made of clay and similar objects – which will be used for assembling the mosaic.

The workshop is tutored by Nevena Aleksovski and Danijela Zajc, and is free of charge.
