Master-class: Hand-Made Kyrgyz Traditional Doll

Sierra coffee, Manas ave/ Kievskaya str

The nomadic Kyrgyz made each item by hand with the use of natural materials. Toys for children were also made with available natural materials.

Chiy kuurchak (Straw doll), Kyrgyz traditional doll was made with the use of wood or straw, stone, wool thread, and a piece of fabric.

Chiy kuurchak didn’t only serve as a toy for little children, it was also used as a protective amulet. Grandmothers would make chiy kuurchak for the newborn baby and attach the doll on the cradle to drive away attention of evil forces.

On this master-class we will learn how to make the nomad’s ancient doll. Each participant can make their own chiy kuurchak and take it home. Making a doll with one's own hands is a creative and meditative process which is useful for both adults and children.
