At the Children and Youth Centre (CYC) “Altona” on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons at 5 pm Creative Workshops take place and can be attended by any person interested.

The main aim of workshops in 2017 is to make a big size national ornament belt dedicated to 100th anniversary of Latvia. The perimeter of the building is 122 m, therefore with the help of previously made square patterns and wooden blocks there will be a 122 m long and 70 cm wide symbolic latvian national ornaments belt created.

Alongside with the previously mentioned activity there will be a possibility for target groups to acquire different useful everyday skills: making of accessories, floristics, decoupage, clothing repair in feltstyle. The topics of the workshops will be adapted to actual events and traditions of society of Latvia. During the activities participants will be asked to share opinion on workshops' topics, and to share previously acquired creative skills. Aim is not only to learn but to teach others.
