Big reed crowns
Making reed crowns is about filling leisure time with figuring out and enjoying things. To make this more challenging, we like to build extra big reed crowns.
Planning to set new record
Liina Veskimägi-Iliste from The Estonian Folk Art, Craft Union and Urmas Veersalu were planning to beat this record at St Martin`s Fair on 7-10th November 2019, in Tallinn, Estonia.
They introduced this plan at national television ETV morning program “Terevisioon”.
Building reed crown
Lithuanians had a reed crown with a length of 150 centimeters, while the Estonian reed crown had a length of 230 centimeters. That would be a multiple record.
Look a video about this interesting event! At the end You´ll see how the reed crown is measured.
Waiting for verification
