Maardilaat-St. Martin's Day Fair
This weekend is Maardilaat (St. Martin's Day Fair) in Tallinn, Estonia. It is Estonia's largest handicraft and folkloric lifestyle event. At this event you can see mix of modern and tradition, this can be seen in masters of their skills showing off their work and skills to younger audiences. You can also see every region and parish represented in pattern side by side. I love to see how the knits are displayed, particularly the mittens, which have been an inspiration for me in my work and particular in my MA research and practice. You can see the patterns together and see the shared motifs as well as unique elements.
