Meetings with Cepelia on Chmielna Street

From May until September 2010 Cepelia organizes monthly “Meetings with Cepelia on Chmielna Street”. Their purpose is to present folk art, craft and rites of the most interesting Polish regions. On Chmielna Street (from 8 Chmielna St, Cepelia’s premises to Nowy Świat) folk artists and craftsmen were presenting their skills and selling their products. Children could participate in pottery workshops. Each meeting was enriched with concerts of folk ensembles.
