On December 4, 2021, The Center for National Cultures and the Fashion Theater “Kostyumer” held a master class on making a Krupenichka talisman doll in the concert hall “Vitebsk”.

Krupenichka is a doll that brings prosperity and well-being to the house, creating warmth and comfort in it. These dolls were made in their own way in each family, investing all the love and accumulated centuries-old wisdom. They bore the imprint of the spirit of this family, their understanding and perception of the world. 

Krupenichka was considered to be the main doll in the family. Our ancestors richly dressed it up and carefully kept it for a year in the most prominent place in the house.

Thanks to this event, foreign students were able to get acquainted with the culture and traditions of our country. 

The master class was attended by students from Ghana, Lebanon, Turkmenistan, and China, representing Vitebsk State Medical University, Vitebsk State University named after P.M. Masherov, and Vitebsk State Academy of Veterinary Medicine. 

This wonderful event, involving making a national amulet doll in a creative atmosphere over tea and conversation, left all the participants spiritually enriched.
