Močvara nightclub in Zagreb, right on the Sava embankment (with Trnjanski Nasip bb being the address) is known for decades of supporting alternative art and culture, from music (punk-rock, metal, indie, and the most obscure electro-music extravagance), to theater, literature, circus, and more. As TCN wrote a couple of years ago, the venue hosted Žedno-Who pre-Party with a performance of an established Canadian musician Marc Demarco. In recent years Močvara opened more space to handcraft and Do-it-yourself culture (DIY).
In that spirit, the venue hosts a Handcraft Fair this Sunday, September 26, from noon to 6 pm, and the entrance is free of charge.
The event is part of the Močvara Living Room (Močvari Dnevni Boravak) program, happening mostly once to twice a month.
The fair will offer visitors handcraft jewelry, herbal food, drinks, clothes, toys, and cruelty-free cosmetics.
So far, the event’s Facebook page has presented five local exhibitors that will showcase and offer their work to the visitors.
Free Goats is a new project with the „aim of visually expressing completely personal perception of everyday observations“. The various themes are united by stylish simplicity, and visitors can see and buy stickers, original drawings, and smaller dimension prints. Most of the work, as the project description points out, is made on recycled paper.
Resin+Metal handcraft jewelry is inspired by the everyday woman (from red lipstick to a girl in cleats).
Tallulah’s Workshop is a vintage-inspired female collective making scrunchies and hair bands in various patterns and with floral decorations.
Dangerous Beats, a long-time producer and percussionist, recently shifted to tie-dye T-shirts and alcoholic ink.
Last but not least, Jelena lončarić’s handcraft jewelry comes in all sizes, shapes, and colors.
With these five local artists confirmed, the event page points out that participation applications are still open until September 24. Just like the entrance to the event, participating in showcasing your work is also free of charge, but you have to send a mail to [email protected] to apply.
Udruga Avokado Avokado (Avokado Association), promotes a vegan diet and ecological sustainability.
With the aforementioned space for alternative arts and lifestyles, Močvara’s Handcraft Fair is one more event that connects local artists with the public and gives space to less conventional expression.
