Dragi prieteni,

Am născocit pentru întâmpinarea primăverii, mărțișoare originale și surprinzătoare!

Nerăbdarea este mare, așa că vă destăinuim chiar acum seria pe care v-am pregătit-o.

Primul din listă este binecunoscutul Cărţişor, care cheamă primăvara-n zbor. Cărțișor este un mărțișor marca Moara de hârtie, ce conține iubire, bucurie și poezie.

Inimă iubitoare” este un mărţişor-broșă din lut ars, simplu sau pictat în roșu, în formă de inimă, realizat la Olarnița din Satul Mestesugurilor, ca și „Cuvânt bun” – mărţişorul din lut, culoarea ceramicii arse, ce are imprimate în relief cuvinte precum: Armonie, Bucurie, Iubire.

IMG_3818-edit

Și la Atelierul cu rost am lucrat două tipuri de mărțișoare-broșă. Unul brodat manual cu motive tradiţionale pe care l-am botezat „ArtiZâna” de la Artizânele noastre, și unul croşetat manual din fir de bumbac alb şi roşu. Pentru că este înfloritor l-am numit „Flori de mărțișor”.

ArtiZane

Întreaga colecţie de mărţişoare vă aşteaptă pe site-ul Satul meșteșugurilor, să o vizitaţi pe îndelete și să vă alegeți ce vă place, iar în curând va fi disponibilă în librării și magazine de profil.

Dacă doriți să comandați mărțișoare pentru colegi ori angajații firmei, vă rugăm să ne contactați la echipa@moaradehartie.ro sau la 0743266262 pentru a vă trimite o prezentare.

Vă așteptăm la mărțișoare și cărțișoare de Comana! 🙂

Spring Workshops for Groups

foto promo ateliere martisoare

Spring has come – full of splendor, flowers and colours!

In this special period, when nature and hearts all flourish, we invite children to take part in our spring session of activities, to greet spring with the fruit of their skill and inspiration! Here is what we propose:

The Workshop of poetic Mărțişoare (Spring Symbols) combines poetry and skill! Children will work with paper of different colours, handmade with smiley insertions of grass or flowers! They will twist colourful threads or will stick well cut shapes. They will combine different materials to create lovely spring symbols. And to have a divine day, they will find poems on the way!

During the Workshop of Spring Greeting Cards children will use their imagination to create greeting cards out of paper made sheet by sheet within The Paper Mill Workshop Museum. Afterwards, their turn will come to continue the story of the sheet of paper by printing themselves another greeting card. Therefore, they will not only work out a greeting card themselves, but they will also print one at an old press! Poetry, our beloved friend, will be present till the end!

Painted Ceramics for Artistic Spring Symbols is a workshop that invites children in the magic realm of inspiration! Young artists will have the chance to transform, by the great force of colours, a common piece of clay into a joyful symbol of spring!

The Workshop of Letters-Treasures is an invitation to express feelings, to love and communicate! Children will make friends with letters, by discovering correspondence pages of literature. Afterwards, they will write a message themselves, by hand. The letter will reach the addressee with a wax seal, as in the old times.

Weaving Spring Symbols and Having Good Fun is a very special workshop that invites children to share and enjoy spring colours and stories and, most of all, to weave lovely Mărțişoare (Spring Symbols). Children will create their own Mărțişor at a small-size hand loom. We consider this workshop unique, as a traditional craft is discovered in the light of spring colours!

Workshops for groups can be organized on any day of the week, on request. For further details and inscriptions, do not hesitate to contact us at echipa@moaradehartie.ro or 0723266262.

It is here that you can access the presentation of the other standard workshops for groups.

Be welcome!

The wonderful summer is almost gone and we intend to keep our promise and open wide, for one day, the gates of the Paper Mill, for whoever wishes to visit us and to know at least a part of our story.

We wished to have more visiting days, but this summer was like fairytale, on the one hand, and with various obligations, on the other hand. To make a long story short, at the beginning of summer some of us were teaching crafts in  Luncavița (Tulcea), others were busy with the workshops organized at the Paper Mill, then we were all involved in the summer school dedicated to young architects, in workshops, creating new products, orders, and, beside all these, working at Comana Crafts Village Satul meșteșugurilor , on which we focused almost all the time.

Nevertheless, all through the summer we have received a lot of messages from people who wish to visit our beloved Mill and that is why we decided to invite you into our story on Sunday, August 30th, from 13:00, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00. You will visit the Paper Mill Workshop-Museum, you will see a demonstration of handmade paper, you will listen to us sharing our dreams, that will take shape one after the other, such as Comana Crafts Village, a project co-financed by Innovation Norway, through Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2009-2014, within the financing domain Innovation in Green Industry – Romania, that sustains projects with positive impact on environment.

The entry fee will be as a donation. The amount proposed is 10 lei for adults, but if children wish to donate, we willingly receive their contributions, as well. Donations are important for us and help us carry on our projects.

We are looking forward to receiving your inscriptions via e-mail at echipa@moaradehartie.ro, kindly asking you to mention the hour when you prefer to come.

See you all on August 30th!

The event will propose the opening of the itinerant exhibition „Verna-cultura Summer School. Traditional crafts in the context of contemporary architecture” and will launch the Good Practices Guide, both parts presenting activities carried on within the project.

Re-cognizing traditional crafts in construction field represents re-cognizing the essence of Romanian architecture. With this purpose in mind, the Paper Mill Association, in partnership with the Department of Architecture of “Spiru Haret” University and the European Foundation for Eco-sustainable Development organized over 13th–23rd of July 2015 the Summer School „Verna-cultura. Traditional crafts in the context of contemporary architecture”, in Comana village,  Giurgiu county. It addressed a number of 15 young architects and was financed by the „Architecture Stamp” Fund, through the Cultural Projects Session 2015 of the Architects’ Union in România.

By taking part in the Summer School, young architects had the opportunity to  participate in theoretical and practical sessions meant to help them discover techniques of vernacular-type traditional construction works. The theoretical sessions in which they participated were completed with visits of certain special places in Comana village, showing examples of vernacular building practices. Moreover, the young architects got involved in the building site of Comana Crafts Village Satul meșteșugurilor, a project of the Paper Mill Association, unique in Romania both by traditional  construction techniques and by its social, educational and cultural objectives – building a small village dedicated to traditional crafts, meant to be a source of income for the community.

Press Release

Wednesday, 22 April 2015 by
privire-de-ansamblu-moara

We joyfully invite you to visit the Paper Mill on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of May! Beside visiting the workshop-museum, we are willing to tell you about our great projects, to hear your opinions, ideas and hopefully find together means of collaboration and support.

We have gone through a lot of adventures since 2009, when the idea of the Paper Mill started to take shape in our hearts. We have lived moments of intense happiness, we have known people of an extreme inner beauty and we managed to plant seeds that started to give fruit. As time passed, we realized that almost all the people who were close to us and helped us in our daring actions, were or became our friends. That without them, the Paper Mill may have remained just an idea and we would not have lived these precious moments, full of hope and joy.

That is why we wish to continue making our projects grow together with all those who believe in us and in our ideas. At the beginning of our story we tried to manage by ourselves, but all throughout these years we learnt to give up pride and ask for help. Every time, our family and dear friends were there for us. We were surprised to see how people that we had not known for a long time cared for us and the Paper Mill, offering us all their support. We felt that there are friends everywhere, just that we had not known them yet. All we need is find a way to call them and they will come to us. It is exactly what we started doing this spring and we shall continue doing this in those to come.

Therefore, those of you who hear us and want to find out about our story, dreams and projects, are impatiently invited on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Paper Mill in Comana. We shall inform you, first of all, about the newest and most complex project of the Paper Mill Association, Comana Crafts Village, project financed by Innovation Norway, through Norway Financial Mechanism 2009-2014, within the financing domain Innovation in Green Industry – Romania, which sustains projects with positive impact on environment.

 

The hours when we will be waiting for you are: 11.00, 13.00, 15.00, 17.00. Please inform us if you come via e-mail at dana@moaradehartie.ro, by sending a message on our facebook page or by telephone at 0724.290.010. The entrance will be free of charge. Still, if you like the projects that we wish to develop, any donation is more than welcome and helps us go on, to be of use!

 

Looking forward to welcoming you,

 

The Paper Mill Team
