We are participating in the 23rd Forum of Mediterranean Maritime Heritage

Betina Museum of Wooden Shipuilding is participating in this weekend’s Forum of Mediterranean Maritime Heritage which will be held in Museo della Marineria in Cesenatico in the organization of Association of Mediterranean Maritime Museums. We are looking forward to this conference since it is an opportunity to gather new experiences and learn about other associations and museums with interesting ideas and visions. The topic of our presentation is “Wooden boat as a representative of maritime heritage” with the emphasis on how positive things happened in our local community as a result of the effort of many enthusiasts. The presentation also puts Betina gajeta in the middle of the whole shipbuilding story as a perfect example of how it represents local maritime heritage. More info here:…

The making of Betina gajeta scale model

The main goal of this workshop is to initiate interest in modelling, handcraft and shipbuilding. By making, forming their shape and then fining of all the small parts for our scale model children have learneda lot about the main components of the boat. By doing so, there’s also a lot to be learnt on how to handle tools and how to form a fine shape.   Central motive of the workshop is a small scale model of a Betina gajeta which is also one of the most distinctive souvenirs in our souvenirshop. It represents the Museum but also the entire village because of its significance for its shipbuilding heritage.   In accordance with local souvenir makers we prepared a wide number of tools and other utensils to help us with modelling and…

Orhan Pamuk: A modest manifesto for museums

Orhan Pamuk on museums, the text follows. Original link: http://en.masumiyetmuzesi.org/page/a-modest-manifesto-for-museums    A MODEST MANIFESTO FOR MUSEUMS I love museums and I am not alone in finding that they make me happier with each passing day. I take museums very seriously, and that sometimes leads me to angry, forceful thoughts. But I do not have it in me to speak about museums with anger. In my childhood there were very few museums in Istanbul. Most of these were historical monuments or, quite rare outside the West­ern world, they were places with an air of a government office about them. Later, the small museums in the backstreets of European cities led me to realize that museums—just like novels—can also speak for individuals. That is not to understate the…

Read to me!

We have joined the national campaign “Read to me” so we’ve read several stories to the kids in the museum this morning. They told us they love reading very much and their parents read stories to them too. For the occasion we borrowed some children’s stories from the library and decorated the museum a little bit. The children told us they loved the stories we’ve chosen for them ❤️, it was very illustrative, and they would definitely come for a visit again! They took a look arround the museum afterwards as well!

We visited the island Ugljan

On the island of Ugljan there is a village Preko that we visited along with our colleagues from the Zora Folklore Society. Our visit was quite useful since we have seen the process of making different weaven decorative ethnic items. We expect them to show their skills in making kanica and spara again in Betina for all who would be interested in learning how to make traditional decorative items. We as well will try to develop our own skills in this technique.  During our Week of Folkore this summer we hope to set up their play too!
