Today, a Folk Art Fair entitled, “Autumn’s Opening” opened at the Donetsk Botanical Garden. More than 70 enterprises, studios, and creative associations put on display handicrafts made of metal, glass, ceramics, wood, and other materials. Besides this, participants held a concert and various workshops. This fair opens “A City of Craftsmen: The Botanical Garden… A Place of Art”. Svetlana Prikhodko, the director of the Botanical Gardens, told us:

Masters and craftsmen from all over the DNR attended this event. The fair portrays all the colours of autumn… we have potters, bakers, ceramicists, embroiderers, and many more. In addition to a huge variety of crafts, fairgoers can be part of photosets or take part in workshops on knitting, decoupage, and pottery. We’ll even have yoga classes on the Garden lawn. We expect up to 6,000 visitors, and they’d be able to find a souvenir to fit their taste. In addition to the exhibition and sale area, we also have a children’s area where kids can play games with giant puppets and other entertainment. For the first time, we’ll hold a special acoustic music concert in one of the greenhouses of the garden. The fair will last two days. We’ll hold the same sort of thing in the garden on Day of the Teacher. We want to establish a permanent market-fair for folk artists here in Donetsk.

Donetsk Botanical Garden, established in 1964, is amongst the largest in Europe, it covers 202 hectares (2 square kilometres, 500 acres/0.78 square mile). The establishment has a unique collection of 8,000 species, forms, and varieties of plants. Garden staff actively develops commercial garden botany, which is especially important for this industrial region.
